The owners of a 2009 Dodge Charger contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from in front of their residence in the 1900 block of Cardiae.  The owners had parked it and when they returned found it missing 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 Dodge.

Three minutes later troopers from Nevada Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Dodge 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 troopers tracked the vehicle to the intersection of Sahara and Mojave where they found the Dodge parked and unoccupied. The Charger was recovered undamaged.  The Dodge was towed for safekeeping.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Dodge Charger in October of 2008 at Champion Dodge, Downey, California.
