The owners of a 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle stolen the driveway of their home in the 1700 block of Sombrero. The owners had parked it for the night and had gone into their residence. When they returned they found that the Chevrolet was missing so they contacted the police department.
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 Chevrolet.
A short while later troopers from Nevada Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the troopers tracked the vehicle to a residential address in the 1900 block of Caballero where they located the Chevrolet unoccupied. Officers recovered the stolen Chevrolet and towed it for safekeeping.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Avalanche in January 2002 at Martin Chevrolet, Torrance, California.
