The owner of a 2010 Honda Civic 2 door contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 1600 block W. North Avenue in Baltimore City, Maryland, after a subject that was test driving the vehicle never returned the vehicle to him/her.
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 Honda Civic.
A short while later officers in the Baltimore City PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda Civic with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Honda to the 2200 block N. Fulton Street in Baltimore City. At this time, the Honda was being operated by a theft suspect and upon stopping the vehicle the operator was placed under arrest by police and the undamaged Honda recovered.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2010 Honda Civic 2 door during June 2010 at Jim Coleman Honda in Clarksville, Maryland.
