The owners of a 2015 Toyota Prius contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home during an overnight residential burglary. The suspect obtained the keys to the Toyota in the 5700 block Narcissus Road in the Mount Washington area of 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 Toyota Prius.

A short while later officers from the Baltimore City PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota Prius 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 Toyota to the 5800 block Rock Spring Road in Baltimore City. At that location, officers observed the Toyota parked and unoccupied. Officers recovered the Toyota and had it towed for forensic processing.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2015 Toyota Prius in August 2015 at Russell Toyota in Baltimore, Maryland.
