The owner of a 2002 Honda Accord contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 400 E. Lanvale Street in Baltimore City, Maryland. Baltimore City Police Radio dispatched an officer to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the subject vehicle. When the officer was unable to locate the vehicle, 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 City Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen 2002 Honda Accord 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 vehicle to the area of 2200 Boone Street in the Midway East area of Baltimore City. At this location, police observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The undamaged vehicle was then recovered by police and the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $ 4,050.00                     

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2002 Honda Accord during November, 2001 at Maroone Honda of Hollywood in Hollywood, Florida.
