The owners of a 2007 Cadillac CTS last saw their vehicle parked at their residence in the 2400 block of Ping Drive in the City of Henderson on May 7, 2012. Later that morning they discovered t hat the car was missing, and immediately reported the crime to the Henderson Police Department.

Henderson officers verified the theft, prepared a theft report and had the Cadillac’s information entered into the state and federal crime computer systems. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Cadillac, prompting it to begin emitting a silent homing signal. Neither the police nor law enforcement agents had to do anything else to activate the LoJack Vehicle Recovery Network, as LoJack’s interface with the police is both seamless and instantaneous.

A short time later, officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s “Southeast Area Command” began picking up the homing signal near Nellis Boulevard and E. Desert Inn Road. Following the directional cues on the LoJack Police Tracking Computer installed in their patrol car, the officers quickly located the abandoned Cadillac near the intersection of Encina & Hildago a few blocks east of the Boulder Station Casino.

The vehicle was recovered 103 minutes after activation by the Henderson Police; over 10 miles away from where it had been taken. The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in December 2006 in Henderson, Nevada.
