The owner of a 2011 Toyota Sienna contacted the Baltimore County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 3900 Annapolis Road in the Landstowne area of Baltimore County, Maryland. Baltimore County Police Radio dispatched an officer from Precinct 1 to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the subject vehicle. Investigation by the on scene officer determined 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 2011 Toyota Sienna.

A short while later, officers from Baltimore County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2011 Toyota Sienna 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 2300 Research Avenue in the Wilkins area of Baltimore County, Maryland. At this location, officers observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The vehicle was recovered by police and the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $13,325.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2011 Toyota Sienna in May, 2011 at DARCARS Toyota in Baltimore, Maryland.
