On December 16, 2012, the owner of a 2000 Jeep Cherokee contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen during an armed carjacking from the 4500 Block Fairview Avenue in Baltimore, Maryland.

Baltimore City Police Department police verified the theft and entered the Jeep’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short while later, patrol officers in Baltimore City picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Jeep on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle to the 4000 block of Wabash Avenue in Baltimore City. There, the officers located the unoccupied stolen Jeep.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Jeep Cherokee in May, 2000 at Antwerpen Jeep.
