The owner of a 2007 Honda Accord contacted the Baltimore County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 3600 Eitemiller Road in the Pikesville area of Baltimore County, Maryland. The Baltimore County PD Radio dispatched an officer to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the Honda. The officer learned that an extra key to the Honda was in the vehicle console. When the officer was unable to locate the Honda 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 Honda Accord.

A short while later, officers from the Baltimore County PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda 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 Honda to the unit block of Tentmill Lane, an apartment complex in the Pikesville area of Baltimore County, Maryland.  At this location, officers observed the Honda parked and unoccupied.  Plainclothes detectives responded to the area and surveillance resulted in the arrest of four theft suspects as they attempted to leave the area in the Honda.  Police then recovered the Honda and notified the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2007 Honda Accord in May 2007 at Norris Honda in Baltimore, Maryland.
