The owners of a 2015 Subaru Impreza contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot of a smoke shop in the 9600 block of Tropicana.  The owners had parked the Subaru in front of the smoke shop and left the Subaru running and unsecured while going inside.  While inside the smoke shop they observed their Subaru driving away and ran after it.  They then notified the police department about the theft.   

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 Subaru.

A short while later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Subaru 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 the parking lot of an executive airport in the 5300 block of Las Vegas Boulevard.  The Subaru was unoccupied and undamaged.  The Subaru was recovered and returned back to the owners. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Subaru Impreza in January 2015 at Subaru of Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada.
