The owners of a 2010 Nissan Maxima contacted the Anne Arundel County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the parking lot of Arundel Mills Mall in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.  The Anne Arundel PD Radio dispatched an officer to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the Nissan. When the officer was unable to locate the Nissan a stolen vehicle report was prepared. The Anne Arundel 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 Nissan Maxima.

A short while later auto theft detectives from the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the detectives tracked the Nissan to the 1300 block Congress Street SE in Washington, DC. At that location, detectives observed the Nissan parked and unoccupied.  Patrol Officers from the District of Columbia Metropolitan PD responded and recovered the undamaged Nissan and notified the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2010 Nissan Maxima in February 2014 at Herb Gordon Nissan in Silver Spring, Maryland.
