2017 Audi A4 contacted the District of
Columbia Metropolitan Police Department to report
that their vehicle was stolen from in front of their home in the area of 2100 1st
Street NW in Washington, DC. District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Radio dispatched an officer to investigate the
incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant
and surveyed the area for the subject vehicle. Investigation found that the
driver had left the keys in the vehicle overnight. When the officer was unable
to locate the vehicle, a stolen vehicle report was completed. 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 2017 Audi A4.
A short while later, officers from the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2017 Audi A4 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 1200 Vale Street SE. 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: $29,725.00
