The owners of a 2001 GMC Savana contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from the company parking lot in the 6600 block of Boulder Highway sometime during the night.  It had been left in the lot and found to be missing the next morning 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 GMC.

A short while later officers from the Unified Police Department in Utah picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen GMC with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to a business in Taylorsville Utah where they found the GMC abandoned but undamaged.  Officers recovered and towed the stolen GMC or safekeeping. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the GMC Savana in February 2001 at Auto Nation GMC, Las Vegas, Nevada.
