The owners of a 2011 GMC Terrain contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from a mechanic shop in the 6800 block of Speedway Blvd.  The owners had dropped off the GMC to get it repaired and it was supposed to take two weeks.  After two weeks the owner’s attempted to contact the shop but the phone had been disconnected.  The owners went to the shop and found that it had been closed and their GMC was nowhere to be found so they contacted 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 GMC.

Thirteen minutes later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen GMC 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 neighborhood in the 2900 block of Du Barry Manor where GMC was found unoccupied.  The GMC was recovered and towed for safekeeping

The LoJack® System was installed in the GMC Terrain in October 2010 at Auto Nation GMC, Las Vegas, Nevada.
