The owner of a 2003 Jeep Cherokee contacted the Baltimore County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 8600 Quentin Road in the Towson area of Baltimore County, Maryland. Baltimore County Police Radio dispatched an officer from the 6th Precinct to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the subject vehicle. Investigation by the officer on scene determined that the vehicle was stolen after it was left unattended with the keys in the ignition. 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 2003 Jeep Cherokee.

A short while later officers from the Baltimore County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2003 Jeep Cherokee 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 7200 Sindall Road in the Parkville area of Baltimore 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: $4,200.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2003 Jeep Cherokee in October, 2002 at Antwerpen Hyundia in Clarksville, Maryland.
