The owners of a 2014 Audi Q-7 contacted the Baltimore County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 4500 block Warm Stone Circle in Perry Hall, Maryland. Investigation conducted by police on the scene found that unknown suspects had gained access to the vehicle keys in order to steal the Audi.
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 Audi.
A short while later troopers from the Maryland State Police picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Audi with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the troopers tracked the Audi to the 2900 block Placid Avenue in the Parkville area of Baltimore County, Maryland. Detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Team were contacted and they responded to the location. At this location, detectives recovered the parked and unoccupied Audi.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2014 Audi Q-7 in October 2013 at Audi of Tysons Corner in Vienna, Virginia.
