On February 2, 2013, the owner of a 2000 Dodge Caravan contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 2300block of Cedley Street in the southern area of Baltimore City, 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 Dodge.

A short while later, officers from the Baltimore City Police Department picked up the silent Lojack homing signals from the stolen Dodge 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 4300 block of  Seminole Avenue in Baltimore City. At this time, officers recovered the unoccupied stolen Dodge.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Dodge Caravan in September of 1999 at Fitzgerald Dodge in Wheaton, Maryland.
