The owner of a 2007 Nissan Maxima contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 3300 Reisterstown Road in Baltimore City. The Baltimore City PD Radio dispatched an officer from the 7th District to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant, learning that the Nissan had been left unattended with the keys in the ignition, and surveyed the area for the subject vehicle. When the officer was unable to locate the Nissan 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 Nissan Maxima.
A short while later, officers from the Baltimore City PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan Maxima 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 Nissan to the area of 2200 W North Avenue in the southwest area of Baltimore City. At this location officers observed the Nissan parked and unoccupied. The undamaged Nissan was then recovered by police and the owner notified.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2007 Nissan Maxima in August 2007 at Ourisman Honda in Laurel, Maryland.
