On January 29, 2013, the owner of a BMW 740i contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 6100 block of Erdman Avenue in Baltimore, Maryland.
Baltimore City 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 BMW
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 BMW 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 4500 block of Curtis Avenue in Baltimore City, where they located the unoccupied stolen vehicle.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the BMW in December of 2001 at Russell BMW in Baltimore, Maryland.
