The owners of a 2007 BMW 335i contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the driveway of their home in the 1700 block of Silver Pointe.  The owners had started the BMW to warm it up and left it unattended while inside their home.  When they returned, they found the BMW missing, so they notified the police department.   

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.

Ten minutes later officers from Henderson 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 the intersection of Ghost Trace and Candle Maker where it was located unoccupied.  The BMW was then recovered and towed for safekeeping. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the BMW 335i in May 2007 at Cunningham BMW, El Cajon, California.
