In the early morning hours of June 2, 2012, the owner of a 2003 Honda Civic contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report the vehicle stolen. Apparently, the vehicle had been stolen during an armed robbery in the 2000 block of Augusta Avenue. After verifying the theft, Baltimore City officers had the Honda’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

Minutes later, flight officers with the Baltimore City Police Department’s aviation unit began to receive the Honda’s silent LoJack signal on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their police vehicles. Following the directional and audible signal on the LoJack Trackers, the flight crew tracked the Honda to the 4100 block of Lindley Road. There, the officers located the vehicle, parked and unoccupied. Ground patrol units responded to the scene, recovered the vehicle, and had it processed for physical evidence before it was released to the grateful owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda at the new car buyer’s request in June of 2002.
