The owners of a 2014 Mercedes Benz CLA-250 contacted the Baltimore County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the dealership in the Cockeysville area of Baltimore County, Maryland.  The Police conducted a preliminary investigation on the scene and determined that the vehicle was in fact stolen and completed a stolen vehicle report.

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 Mercedes Benz CLA-250.

A short while later officers from the Baltimore County PD and Baltimore City Police Department Aviation Unit, “Foxtrot,” picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Mercedes Benz CLA-250 with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles & helicopter.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Mercedes to the 6500 block Corkley Road in the Rosedale area of Baltimore County.  At that location, officers observed the Mercedes being operated by the theft suspect. Officers stopped the Mercedes and placed the theft suspect under arrest. Officers recovered the undamaged Mercedes and notified the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2014 Mercedes Benz CLA-250 during February 2014 by Valley Motors in Cockeysville, Maryland.
