On July 11, 2011 at 11:09 p.m., the owner of a 2007 Range Rover SUV reported their vehicle stolen after an armed carjacking from 3800 26th St. NE in Washington, DC. A police officer responded to the location and, after conducting an investigation, obtained all the vehicle information to include the vehicle identification number and entered this information into the Washington Area Law Enforcement computer system.

Shortly thereafter, patrol officers in Washington, DC received the silent LoJack homing signal with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer installed in their patrol units. The directional and audible signal of LoJack took officers to the 2100 Block 1st Place NE in DC. At this location, officers found the vehicle parked and unoccupied. They recovered the vehicle and soon returned it to the owner.

After the LoJack signal was activated, the stolen Range Rover was recovered in just 66 minutes!
