On July 2, 2012, the owner of a 2009 Honda Accord contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that the vehicle had been stolen from the 2700 block of Cylburn Meadows Court in Baltimore, Maryland. Baltimore City officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Honda.

Minutes later, detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Team and flight officers in the Baltimore City Aviation Unit, “Foxtrot”, picked up the silent Lojack homing signals from the stolen Honda on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles and helicopter. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the detectives tracked the vehicle to 5300 Denmore Avenue in Baltimore City. There, the officers located the unoccupied stolen Honda. Detectives recovered the undamaged stolen vehicle and returned it vehicle to the owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Accord in June of 2011 at Anderson Honda.
