The owner of a 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot of a casino in the 5100 block of Boulder Highway.  The owner had parked the Chevrolet in the parking lot and locked it prior to going inside to gamble.  After about an hour of gambling the owner came back outside to find his Chevrolet missing.  When he could not find it he Chevrolet he contacted 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 Chevrolet.

Seven minutes later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet 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 address near the intersection of Perliter and Statz in North Las Vegas.  The Chevrolet was unoccupied at the time it was located.  The police recovered the Chevrolet and returned it back to the owner. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Avalanche in July 2005 at Power Chevrolet, Hawthorne, California
