The owners of a 2006 Audi A4 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot of their dealership located in the 5500 block of Winn.  The Audi was parked behind a locked chain barrier and left for the night.  When the owners came into work the next day the chain barrier was broken and the Audi was missing. Video surveillance showed two males get into the Audi and drive through the chain barrier.  The owners then 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 Audi.

Five minutes later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Audi 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 3800 block of Winn where they located the Audi being driven by the two males who were seen on video taking it earlier in the day.  The officers followed the Audi to a safe location where they were able to safely stop it and take the two males into custody.  The two males were arrested for the theft of the Audi and the Audi was recovered and towed for safekeeping. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Audi A4 in March 2006 at Millennium Audi, Houston, Texas.
