On January 6, 2013, the owner of a 2002 Honda Accord contacted the Prince Georges County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen in Bowie, Maryland.

Prince Georges County 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 Honda.

A short while later, officers with the Prince Georges County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Honda 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 9400 Buena Vista Avenue in the Lanham area of Maryland. There, officers located the vehicle being operated by an auto theft suspect. The vehicle was stopped and the driver placed under arrest. Police then recovered the stolen Honda and notified the owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Accord in January of 2002 at Honda of Annapolis in Annapolis, Maryland.
