The owners of a 2004 Toyota Sequoia contacted the Baltimore County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home in the 1500 block Ingleside Avenue while the vehicle was parked in the driveway with the keys in the ignition, engine running, unattended in the Gwynn Oak area of Baltimore County, Maryland.

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 Toyota Sequoia.

A short while later detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Team picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota Sequoia 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 Toyota to the 2400 block Winchester Street in the Sandtown-Winchester area of Baltimore City. At this location, detectives recovered the parked and unoccupied Toyota.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2004 Toyota Sequoia in April 2006 at Brown’s Toyota City in Glen Burnie, Maryland.
