The owner of a 2008 Honda Accord contacted the Baltimore County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from 3500 Carriage Hill Circle in the Woodlawn area of Baltimore County, Maryland.  Baltimore County Police Radio dispatched an officer from the 2nd Precinct 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 2008 Honda Accord.

A short while later, officers from Baltimore County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2008 Honda Accord 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 3800 Kilburn Road in Baltimore County, Maryland. At this location, officers observed the vehicle being operated by the theft suspect. A felony car stop was conducted and the driver placed under arrest. The undamaged vehicle was recovered by police and the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $7,075.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2008 Honda Accord in March 2008 at Honda of Tysons Corner in Vienna, Virginia.
