The owners of a 2003 BMW 325i contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot of their apartment complex in the 3300 block of St Louis. The owners said that they parked and locked the BMW prior to leaving it and when they returned it was missing so they notified 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 BMW.
30 minutes later officers from North Las Vegas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen BMW 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 area in the 2800 block of Judson where they found the BMW unoccupied. The BMW was then recovered and towed for safekeeping.
The LoJack® System was installed in the BMW 325i in May of 2006 at McKenna BMW, Norwalk, California.
