The owners of a 2006 Mercedes 350 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from a repair shop in the 2700 block of Charleston. The owners had dropped it off to be repaired and the shop left the keys to the Mercedes inside it and left it unlocked. During the night the camera caught a male entering the Mercedes and driving off with it. The shop called the owners who responded then notified the 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 Mercedes.
A short while later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Mercedes 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 4600 block of Madera.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Mercedes 350 in August 2005 at Mercedes Benz of Laguna Niguel, Laguna Niguel, California.
