On May 28, 2012, the owner of a 2007 Honda Accord discovered the vehicle stolen from Cleveland Street in Baltimore City and quickly reported the crime to the Baltimore City Police Department. After verifying the theft, Baltimore City officers had the Honda’s information entered into the state and federal crime computer systems, which activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.
A short time later, Baltimore City flight officers received the Honda’s silent LoJack homing signal on the LoJack Police Tracking Computer installed in their helicopter. Following the directional and audible signal from the LoJack Tracker, the flight officers quickly tracked the vehicle to the area of the 1200 block of Glyndon Street in Baltimore City. There, the officers located the parked and unoccupied vehicle. Officers recovered the vehicle and returned it to the grateful owner a short time later.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Toyota Camry at the new car buyer’s request in October of 2007.
