The owner of a 2006 Toyota Camry contacted the Anne Arundel County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 4000 Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Anne Arundel County Police Radio dispatched an officer from the Northern 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 2006 Toyota Camry.

A short while later, detectives from Regional Auto Theft Team picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2006 Toyota Camry 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 detectives tracked the vehicle to 3500 S. Hanover Street in the Brooklyn area of Baltimore City, Maryland. At this location, detectives observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The undamaged vehicle was recovered by police, and the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $5,100.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2006 Toyota Camry in August, 2006 at Brown’s Toyota City in Glen Burnie, Maryland
