The owners of a 2005 Toyota Sequoia contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot of their place of work in the 200 block of Pilot Dr.  The owner had parked the Toyota and left it in the parking lot before work.  After work it was discovered the Toyota was missing so the owner 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 Toyota.

13 minutes 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 parking lot of a convenience store near the intersection of Jones and Vegas.  The Toyota was found to be unoccupied and undamaged.  The officers recovered the Toyota and returned the vehicle back to the owners.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Sequoia in August of 2005 at Claremont Toyota, Claremont, California.
