The owner of a 2001 Volvo V-70 contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 3300 Erdman Avenue in Baltimore City, Maryland. Baltimore City Police Radio dispatched an officer from the 4th District 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 2001 Volvo V-70.

A short while later, detectives from Regional Auto Theft Team picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2001 Volvo V-70with 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 1900 Armco Way in the Dundalk area of Baltimore County, Maryland. At this location, officers observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The undamaged vehicle was recovered by detectives and the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $3,100.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2001 Volvo V-70 in October, 2001 at Silver Spring, Maryland.
