The owner of a 2007 Cadillac CTS contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that her vehicle had been stolen from the driveway of her residence in the 5000 block of Holt.  The owner had started the Cadillac and started to leave when she remembered something forgotten in the home.  The owner then left the Cadillac running and unsecured while she went into the home.  When she returned she found her Cadillac missing so she contacted police.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department 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.

7 minutes later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Cadillac with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to a residential neighborhood in the 100 block of Rose Cir.  The Cadillac was occupied by a male who was safely taken into custody.  The Cadillac was recovered and returned back to the owner and the driver was taken to jail.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Cadillac CTS in June of 2010 at Singh Chevrolet, Riverside, California
