The owner of a 2017 Ford Explorer contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report her vehicle stolen from the driveway of her residence in the 1000 block of Barberton.  The owner had gone outside to her Ford and started it and left it running and unsecured while going back into her residence for a time.  When she returned to leave she found the Ford missing so she notified the police department.   

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.

A short while 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) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to the parking lot of a casino in the 6000 block of Charleston. The Ford was unoccupied and undamaged. Officers recovered the stolen Ford and towed it for safekeeping. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford Explorer in June 2017 at Friendly Ford, Las Vegas, Nevada.
