The owners of a 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from the parking lot of a casino in the 100 block of Tropicana.  The owners had borrowed the Chevrolet to their grandson who stated that he had parked the Chevrolet in the parking garage of a casino and because he was inebriated, left it parked there and took a cab home.  When he returned to where he had parked it he found it missing so he notified his grandparents who responded and called 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 an apartment complex in the 100 block of 20th.  They located the Chevrolet unoccupied and undamaged.  The Chevrolet was recovered and towed for safekeeping.  

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Tahoe in May 2015 at Singh Chevrolet, Riverside, California.
