On December 22, 2012, the owner of a 2004 GMC Yukon Denali contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 5400 block of Force Road in Baltimore, Maryland.

Baltimore City Police verified the theft and entered the Yukon’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 picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen GMC 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 3700 block of Chatham Road in Baltimore City. There, the officers located the occupied stolen GMC, stopped the vehicle, and arrested the driver for auto theft. Police recovered the vehicle and returned it to the owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the GMC Yukon in June of 2008 at Fox Chevrolet in Laurel, Maryland.
