The owner of a 2012 Ford Fusion contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from 700 S. Caroline Street in the Inner Harbor East area of Baltimore City, Maryland. Baltimore City Police Radio dispatched an officer from the 2nd 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 2012 Ford Fusion.

A short while later, officers from Baltimore City Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2012 Ford Fusion 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 1400 Thames Street in the Fells Point area of Baltimore City, 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: $7,200.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2012 Ford Fusion in April, 2015 at Koon’s Ford of Baltimore in Baltimore, Maryland.
