The owner of a 2007 Lexus ES350 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report his vehicle stolen from the valet of a casino in the 3700 block of Las Vegas Blvd.  The owner works valet at the casino and rents out his Lexus through a phone app while he is working.  The owner had rented out the Lexus that day and when it wasn’t returned he attempted to contact the renter only to find out the he had been defrauded and his Lexus had been stolen.  

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 Lexus.

A short while later officers from North Las Vegas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Lexus 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 North Las Vegas where they located the Lexus unoccupied.  The Lexus was recovered and returned back to the owner. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Lexus ES350 in June 2006 at Lexus of Rockville Centre, Rockville Centre, New York.
