The owner of a 2011 Toyota Camry contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen from the driveway of his house in the 4300 block of Pokeweed.  The owner stated that his grandson took the Toyota without permission and told police that he was willing to prosecute the grandson.

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 Toyota.

A short while later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota 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 the intersection of Dorrell and Durango where they found the Toyota occupied by the grandson.  The Toyota was safely stopped and the grandson was arrested.  The Toyota was recovered and returned back to the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the (make and model) in May of 2012 at Nevada Direct Sales Customer.
