The owners of a 2006 Nissan Xterra contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from their garage in the 9000 block of Galina Crossing. The owners had parked the Nissan in their garage leaving in unlocked with the keys inside. They then went inside their residence inadvertently leaving the garage open for the night. The next morning they found the garage still open and the Nissan 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 Nissan.

Five minutes later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan 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 at the corner of Rathburn and Cosley where they found the Nissan unoccupied and undamaged. The Nissan was then recovered by Police and returned to the owners.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Xterra in October of 2006 at United Nissan , Las Vegas, Nevada.
