The owner of a 2007 Ford F150 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen from a residential address in the 8200 block of Gee. The owner had stopped in front of the address and left the Ford running and unsecured while dropping his children at the sitters. When he returned to go to work he found his Ford missing so he immediately called police.
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 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 1400 block of Jones where they found the Ford abandoned. The Ford was then recovered and returned back to the happy owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F150 in August 2007 at North County Ford, Vista, California.
