The owners of a 2017 Ford Explorer contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot of a business in the 9900 block of Las Vegas Boulevard while they were bowling at a casino next door.  The owners had left the Ford secured but when they returned they found that it was missing so they notified the 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 Ford.

A short while later officers from Henderson 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 an address in the city of Henderson where the Ford was located parked and unoccupied.  The Ford was recovered and then returned back to the owners. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford Explorer in August 2016 at Friendly Ford, Las Vegas, Nevada.
