County Police Department to report that their vehicle
was stolen during a residential burglary at their home in the area of 13000 English
Turn Drive in the Silver Spring area of Montgomery County, Maryland. Montgomery County 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. 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

A short while later, officers from the United States Park Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2006 Mercedes Benz CL-500 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 3400 C Street SE in Washington, DC. At this location, officers observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The undamaged vehicle was recovered by police, towed for forensic processing and the owner notified.
Approximate value of vehicle: $6,775.00
