The owner of a 2010 Toyota Corolla contacted the Prince George’s County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from in front of their home in the area of 8100 Landover Road in Landover, Maryland. Prince George’s County 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 2010 Toyota Corolla.

A short while later, officers from the Prince George’s County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2010 Toyota Corolla with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to the intersection of 41st Street and Quintana Street in Landover, Maryland. At this location, officers observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. Officers recovered the stolen vehicle and notified the owner.

Approximate value of vehicle: $6,875.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2010 Toyota Corolla in November, 2009 at DARCARS Toyota in Silver Spring, Maryland.
