The owners of a 2018 Ford F250 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the lot of their dealership in the 600 block of Decatur.  The truck had been parked in the lot with the keys in a lockbox on the window.   It was found missing when an inventory check was done 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 Ford.

Five minutes later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford 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 Bristol and Harper.  The Ford was unoccupied when it was located so it was recovered by police and returned back to the owners. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F250 in March 2018 at Friendly Ford, Las Vegas, Nevada.
