The owners of a 2002 Lincoln Blackwood contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from in front of their residence in the 4600 block of Arrowroot.  The owners had started the Lincoln and left it running after securing it.  When they returned the Lincoln had been stolen 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 Lincoln.

Ten minutes later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Lincoln 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 the intersection of Kane and Alameda where they found the Lincoln occupied by a male.  The officers were able to safely stop the GMC and take the driver into custody.  The Lincoln was recovered and returned back to the owners.  The driver was arrested for the theft of the Lincoln and taken to jail. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Lincoln Blackwood in April of 2003 at Santa Monica Lincoln, Santa Monica, California.
