The owner of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee contacted the Anne Arundel County Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from the area of 900 Central Avenue W. in the Davidsonville area of Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Anne Arundel 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. Investigation by the officer on scene determined the vehicle stolen after it was left running 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 2014 Jeep Cherokee.

A short while later, officers from the Prince George’s County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2014 Jeep Cherokee 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 the 16100 block Parklawn Place in the Bowie area of Prince George’s County, Maryland. 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: $19,875.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2014 Jeep Cherokee in July 2014 at Ourisman Hyundia of Bowie in Bowie, Maryland.
