The owners of a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from in front of their residence in the 5600 block of Sahara.  The owners had started the Chevrolet and then left in running and unsecured while they went back in to their residence.  When the returned to use the Chevrolet they found it 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 Chevrolet.

A short while 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 in the 5400 block of Cleek St.  The Chevrolet was unoccupied and undamaged.  The Chevrolet was then recovered and returned back to the owners. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Silverado in August 2010 at Cormier Chevrolet, Long Beach, California.
