On June 26, 2012, the owner of a 2006 Acura TL contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 1500 block of Stonewood Road in Baltimore City, Maryland.  Baltimore City Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Acura

A short while later, flight officers from the Baltimore County Police Department Aviation Unit in Maryland picked up the silent Lojack homing signals from the stolen Acura on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their helicopter. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the flight officers tracked the vehicle to the 2400 block of Etting Street in Baltimore City, Maryland. Detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Team (RATT) also responded and began surveillance on the stolen Acura. Before long, two suspects returned to the stolen Acura and attempted to leave the area in the stolen Acura; detectives quickly stopped and arrested the suspects. The undamaged stolen Acura was recovered by police and the owner notified.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Acura TL in April, 2006 at Clair Acura.
