The owner of a 2003 Audi A-6 Station Wagon contacted the Baltimore County Police Department in Parkville, Maryland, to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home. It is believed that the Audi was stolen by someone using a spare key.
The Baltimore County 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 2003 Audi A-6 Station Wagon.
A short while later, detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Team and flight officers from the Baltimore City PD Aviation Unit, “ Foxtrot,” picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2003 Audi A-6 Station Wagon 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 Audi to the Govans area of Baltimore City, Maryland. At that location, detectives observed the Audi parked and unoccupied. The undamaged 2003 Audi A-6 Station Wagon was recovered by detectives.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2003 Audi A-6 Station Wagon during April 2003 at Burn’s Ford in Huntington, New York.
