 The owner of a 2011 Nissan Rogue contacted the Howard County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 3800 Bunnybridge Place in the Columbia area of Howard County, Maryland. Howard 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 2011 Nissan Rogue.

A short while later, officers from Prince George’s County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2011 Nissan Rogue 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 officers tracked the vehicle to the intersection of  Balboa Avenue and Doppler Street in the Capitol Heights area of Prince George’s County, Maryland. At this location, officers observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The undamaged vehicle was recovered by police and the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $8,200.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2011 Nissan Rogue in January, 2011 at Nationwide Nissan in Timonium, Maryland.
