The owners of a 2003 Hummer H2 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from the parking lot of the hospital they were at in the 3200 block of Maryland Parkway.  The owners had parked the Hummer and left it locked while going inside. When they returned to leave they found the Hummer 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 Hummer.

A short while later from Nevada Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Hummer 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 troopers tracked the vehicle to the 100 block of Las Vegas Blvd. where they found it to be unoccupied.  The Hummer was undamaged so was recovered.  It was then towed for safekeeping. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Hummer H2 in June 2011 at CarMax, Henderson, Nevada.
