The owner of a 2011 Honda Civic contacted the Baltimore City Police Department in Baltimore, Maryland, to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home in the 2100 block Jubilee Court in Baltimore City.

The Baltimore City PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2011 Honda Civic.

A short while later officers from the Glenarden Police Department  picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2011 Honda Civic with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Honda to the 2900 block Mueserbush Court in the Glenarden area of Prince George’s County, Maryland. At that location, officers observed the Honda parked and unoccupied. Officers located a person in close proximity to the Honda and investigation found that this person had the keys to the stolen Honda Civic in his pocket. The suspect was arrested and the undamaged Honda was returned to the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2011 Honda Civic during March 2014 at VIP Honda in North Plainfield, New Jersey.
