The owner of a 2016 Nissan Versa contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 100 block N Monastery Avenue in the southwestern area of Baltimore City. The Baltimore City PD Radio dispatched an officer from District 8 to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the Nissan. 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 Versa.
A short while later, officers from the Baltimore City PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan Versa 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 600 Wicklow Road in the Rognel Heights area of Baltimore City. At this location, officers observed the Nissan parked and unoccupied. Surveillance on the Nissan failed to identify a suspect and the vehicle was recovered and towed for forensic processing and the owner notified.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2016 Nissan Versa in September 2016 at Nationwide Nissan in Lutherville, Maryland.
