The owner of a 2010 Lexus IS250 contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 6200 The Alameda in Baltimore City, Maryland.  The Baltimore City PD Radio dispatched an officer from the 5th District to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the Lexus. When the officer was unable to locate the Lexus a stolen vehicle report was prepared. The officer then 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 Lexus.

A short while later, officers from the Baltimore County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Lexus 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 Lexus to the area of 9700 Tulsemere Road in the Randallstown area of Baltimore County. At this location, officers observed the Lexus parked and unoccupied. The undamaged Lexus was then recovered by police and the owner notified.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2010 Lexus IS250 in December 2009 at Lexus of Towson in Maryland.
