On January 18, 2013 the owner of a 2009 Toyota Camry contacted the Fairfax County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 6000 block of Richmond Highway in Alexandria, Virginia. At the time of theft, the vehicle was valued in excess of $15,000.

Fairfax 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 Toyota.

A short while later, deputies from the Harford County Sheriff’s Department in Maryland picked up the silent Lojack homing signals from the stolen Toyota on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers the deputies tracked the vehicle to the 700 block of Pulaski Highway in Edgewood, Maryland. There, deputies located the unoccupied stolen Toyota and recovered the vehicle.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Toyota in February of 2008 at Jones Toyota in Belair, Maryland.
