The owners of a 2004 Ford F-650 Dump Truck contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from a maintenance yard in the 5500 block Sinclair Lane in Baltimore City, Maryland.

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 Ford.

A short while later officers from the Baltimore County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles and helicopters. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Ford to the intersection of Mays Chapel Road and West Padonia Road in the Mays Chapel area of Baltimore County. At that location, officers observed the Ford parked and unoccupied. Officers recovered the undamaged Ford and notified the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2004 Ford F-650 during January 2007 via Commercial Sales in Baltimore, Maryland.
