The owners of a 2017 Ford F250 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from their business in the 6000 block of Pecos.  The Ford truck had been rented by a customer and had not been returned.   

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.

Eight minutes later officers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and troopers from Nevada Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford 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 and troopers tracked the vehicle to the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 100 block of 8th St.  The Ford was unoccupied and was recovered.  The Ford was towed for safekeeping. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F250 in April 2017 as a Commercial installation.
