The owners of a 2012 Mercedes C300 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the garage of their residence in the 7000 block of Palace Monaco.   The owners had parked the Mercedes in their garage and left the keys in the Mercedes but forgot to close the garage door.  When they went to use it they realized they had not closed the garage and the Mercedes was now 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 Mercedes.

A short while later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Mercedes 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 casino in the 3600 block of Las Vegas Blvd.  The Mercedes was unoccupied and undamaged.  The Mercedes was recovered by the officers and returned to the owners.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Mercedes C300 in May of 2015 at Centennial Toyota, Las Vegas, Nevada.
