    Man Allegedly Uses GPS To Stalk Ex-Girlfriend
    Tracking System Found In Her Car

    POSTED: 8:07 a.m. EST December 30, 2002

    KENOSHA, Wis. -- A Kenosha man has been arrested for allegedly stalking his former girlfriend with help from a tracking device attached under the hood of her car.

    The man was arrested Friday on a recommended felony charge of burglary and four misdemeanor charges, including stalking.

    He is expected to be formally charged Monday.

    The woman told the Kenosha Police Department her ex-boyfriend would just show up no matter where she was. He often found her in random places like at bars or on the highway.

    Police say the man was always able to find her because of what they believe is a Global Positioning System tracking device. They found it attached between the radiator and grill of the woman's car.

    Such devices use satellite and digital cellular technology to pinpoint the location of targets and are often used to find car thieves.
