LoJack Assists Las Vegas Police in Nabbing Motorcycle Theft Suspects
WESTWOOD, MA --- In less than 48 hours, LoJack Corp.'s LoJack For Motorcycles was instrumental in helping Las Vegas police and the Southern Nevada Auto Theft Task Force break up two theft rings June 14-16.
The operations led to the recovery of four Honda CBR motorcycles, a Yamaha ATV and the arrest of 10 suspects.
"Motorcycle riders need to do everything in their power to protect their valuable assets, because professional thieves can steal a bike right out of your garage and hide it in theirs," said Patrick Clancy, vice president of law enforcement for LoJack. "That's why a recovery system like LoJack that uses radio frequency (RF) technology is so critical to install."
In this recovery, a Las Vegas resident had left his garage door open and later discovered his 2006 Honda CBR600 motorcycle stolen. Once the LoJack Unit was activated, Las Vegas police and the Southern Nevada Auto Theft Task Force located the stolen bike in the garage of a known street gang member. After a search warrant was obtained, officers discovered the stolen Honda CBR600 equipped with the LoJack, along with a stolen 2001 Honda CBR900 inside the garage. Seven suspects were arrested for operation of a chop shop, possession of stolen property and grand larceny auto.
