The owner of a 2004 Subaru Impreza contacted the Baltimore City Police Department in Baltimore, Maryland, to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home.

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 2004 Subaru Impreza.

A short while later, detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Team and flight officers from the Baltimore City Aviation Unit, “ Foxtrot,” picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2004 Subaru Impreza with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles and helicopter. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the flight officers and detectives tracked the Subaru to the 5400 block Pioneer Drive in the Hamilton area of Baltimore City, Maryland. At that location, detectives observed the Subaru parked and unoccupied. The undamaged 2004 Subaru Impreza was recovered by detectives.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2004 Subaru Impreza during April 2004 at Russell Subaru in Baltimore, Maryland.
