The owners of a 2002 Ford Explorer contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle stolen their residence in the 6200 block of Casa Loma.  They had one of their adult kids over for a bit and while there he disappeared from the residence.  Upon looking for him they found that the keys to their Ford were missing and upon further looking found the Ford missing from the driveway of their residence so they notified 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 Ford.

Five minutes later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) 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 1800 block of Palmer where they found the Ford occupied and mobile.  The officers were able to safely stop the Ford and take the driver into custody.  The Ford was recovered and returned back to the owners.  The owner’s son was arrested for the theft and taken to jail.  

The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford Explorer in March 2008 at Luxury Motors Las Vegas, Henderson, Nevada.
