The owners of a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from in front of their residence in the 6800 block of Carey.  The owners had parked it and gone inside for the night.  When they returned to use it they found it 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 Dodge.

A short while later officers from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Dodge 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 the intersection of Alto and Mt Hood where they located the Dodge unoccupied.  The Dodge was recovered and returned back to the owners. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Dodge Ram in September 2008 and was a direct sale.
