The owners of a 2012 BMW F800ST contacted the Baltimore County Police Department, after they received an early warning theft alert from LoJack relating to this motorcycle. The owner upon checking discovered their vehicle stolen from the unit block of Kenwood Avenue in the Woodlawn area of Baltimore County, Maryland. Baltimore County Police dispatched an officer to the location and the officer upon arrival obtained all the motorcycle information and searched the area for the vehicle. After not locating the vehicle, a stolen vehicle report was completed. Baltimore County Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2012 BMW F800ST.

After a short while, later officers from the Baltimore County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen 2012 BMW F800st with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in their patrol vehicles and helicopters. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to the 100 block of Kenwood Avenue in the Woodlawn area of Baltimore County, Maryland. The motorcycle was located after officers tracked the signal to the rear of a school, and searched a wooded area behind the school. At this location, officers observed the vehicle abandoned. The undamaged vehicle recovered by police and the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $ 5,915.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2012 BMW F800ST in June 2012 at Bob’s BMW in Jessup, Maryland.
