On February 1, 2013 the owner of a 2004 BMW 330i contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 4400 block of Pennington 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.
Within minutes, patrol officers from the Baltimore Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen BMW 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 1600 block of Ben Hill Avenue in Baltimore City. There, the officers located the unoccupied stolen BMW.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the BMW in February of 2004 at Russell BMW in Baltimore, Maryland.
