The owner of a 2010 Mitsubishi Galant contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 600 Eutaw Street in Baltimore City. The Baltimore City PD Radio dispatched an officer from the 1st District to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the Mitsubishi. When the officer was unable to locate the Mitsubishi 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 Mitsubishi Galant.
A short while later, officers from the Baltimore City PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Mitsubishi 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 Mitsubishi to the area of 200 E Lafayette Street in the Greenmount West area of Baltimore City. At this location, officers observed the Mitsubishi parked and unoccupied. The undamaged Mitsubishi was then recovered by police and towed for forensic processing. Police then notified the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2010 Mitsubishi Galant in September 2010 at Jerry’s Chevrolet in Parkville, Maryland.
