The owners of a 2009 Cadillac CTS contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from the parking lot of their apartment complex in the 6300 block of Lake Mead.  The owners had placed an ad in order to sell the Cadillac. The suspect contacted them and asked to take the Cadillac out for a drive.  The owners agreed and allowed the man to take the Cadillac.  The man left and did not return.  After many attempts to get ahold of the suspect the owners contacted police to report the Cadillac as stolen.    

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 Cadillac.

A short while later officers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department as well as troopers from Nevada Highway patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Cadillac with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers and troopers tracked the vehicle to the 1200 block of American Pacific in Henderson where it was located in the parking lot of a business.  Officers recovered the vehicle and towed it for safekeeping. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Cadillac CTS in November 2010 as a direct purchase.
