On December 15, 2012, the owner of a 2007 Lincoln Town Car contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 3600 block of Pulaski Highway in Baltimore, Maryland.
Baltimore City Police verified the theft and entered the Lincoln’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.
A short while 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 Lincoln on the 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 the 1900 block of N. Charles Street in Baltimore City. There, the officers located the unoccupied stolen Lincoln.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Lincoln Town Car in October of 2006 at Koons Lincoln Mercury in Owings Mills, Maryland.
