The owner of a 2009 Acura TL contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 2700 Pelham Avenue in Baltimore City.  The Baltimore City PD Radio dispatched an officer from the 4th District to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the Acura. When the officer was unable to locate the Acura a stolen vehicle report was prepared. Investigation by the officer on scene determined the Acura had been stolen after it was left unattended with the keys in the ignition. 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 Acura.

A short while later, officers from the Baltimore City PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Acura 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 Acura to the area of 5600 Northwood Drive in the northeast area of Baltimore City. At this location officers located the Acura parked and unoccupied. The undamaged Acura was then recovered by police and the owner notified.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2009 Acura TL in June 2009 at Tischer Acura in Laurel, Maryland.
