owner of a 2002 Audi A4 contacted the Harford County Sheriff’s Department to report their vehicle stolen from their home
in the Abington area of Harford County, Maryland. Harford County
Sheriff’s Radio dispatched a deputy 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 2002 Audi A4.
A short while later, officers from Baltimore City Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2002 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 the 300 W. Hoffman Street in the Mount Vernon area of Baltimore City, Maryland. At this location, officers observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. Officers recovered the undamaged vehicle and the owner notified of recovery.
Approximate value of vehicle: $2,725.00
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2002 Audi A4 in January 2002 at Audi of Brookline in Brookline, Massachusetts.
