The owners of a 2009 Cadillac Escalade (limousine) contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen. The driver of the Cadillac stopped by his residence, in the 5000 block of Duneville, to take his lunch break. The driver left the Cadillac unlocked and left the keys in the ignition while he went inside to have lunch. When the driver returned he found the Cadillac missing.
A police officer verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Cadillac.
13 minutes later officers from the Henderson Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Cadillac with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC the officers tracked the Cadillac to the parking lot of a strip mall in the 600 block of South Boulder Highway. The Cadillac was unoccupied and was not damaged. The Cadillac was recovered and returned back to the driver.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Cadillac Escalade in August 2009 at Cadillac West in Las Vegas, Nevada.
