The owners of a 2015 Honda Civic contacted the Baltimore County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 6300 block of Johnnycake Road in the Woodlawn area of Baltimore County, Maryland. Baltimore County Police dispatched an officer to the location and the officer upon arrival obtained all the vehicle information and searched the area for the vehicle. Investigation by officer on the scene determined the vehicle was stolen after it was left unattended with the keys in the ignition. After not locating the vehicle, a stolen vehicle report was completed. Baltimore County Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2015 Honda Civic.

After a short period of time, officers from the Baltimore County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen 2015 Honda Civic with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles and helicopters.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to the 100 block of Stonecroft Road in the Wilkens area of Baltimore County, Maryland. At this location, officers observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The undamaged vehicle was recovered and the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $ 13,100.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2015 Honda Civic during October, 2015 at Jim Coleman Honda in Clarksville, Maryland.
