The owner of a 2004 Jaguar XJR contacted the Westminster Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from 200 Lodestone Court in the Westminster area of Carroll County, Maryland. Westminster 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 2004 Jaguar XJR.

A short while later, detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Team picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2004 Jaguar XJR with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the detectives tracked the vehicle to 700 Milyer Lane in Baltimore City, Maryland. At this location, detectives observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The undamaged vehicle was recovered by police and the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $6,350.00
