Baltimore City Police Radio dispatched an officer from the 1st 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 2007 Toyota Highlander.

At this location, officers observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied.  Officers recovered the stolen Toyota and notified the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $8,925.00
