On February 10, 2013, the owner of a 2011 Honda CRV contacted the Baltimore County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 5500 block of Ashbourne Road in the Halethorpe area of Baltimore County, Maryland. At the time of theft, this vehicle was valued at $22,000.
Baltimore 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 Baltimore 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 1700 Arlington Avenue in the Woodlawn area of Baltimore County. There, the officers located the unoccupied stolen Honda in the block.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda CRV in September of 2011 at Jim Coleman Jaguar in Clarksville, Maryland.
