The owner of a 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander contacted the Baltimore County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 3400 Carriage Hill Circle in the Woodlawn area Baltimore County, Maryland, after the theft suspect snatched the vehicle keys from the owners hand. The Baltimore County PD Radio dispatched an officer to investigate the incident. The officer arranged for the stolen vehicle information to be entered into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Mitsubishi.
A short while later, officers from the Baltimore County PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Mitsubishi 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 Mitsubishi to a gas station at the intersection of Liberty Road and Old Court Road. At this location, officers observed the Mitsubishi being operated by the theft suspect. Officers conducted a felony vehicle stop and placed the operator under arrest for stolen auto. The undamaged Mitsubishi was then recovered by police and the owner notified.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander in June 2011 at Jerry’s Chevrolet in Parkville, Maryland.
