Police Used Stingray To Catch Chicken Wing Thief

There is a rather lengthy article posted over at the Capital News Service today on the subject of the secrecy concerns surrounding the use of cell phone trackers. If you have time, you should give it a read, it's a very interesting article.

Howard police also used the device in suicides, kidnappings and in at least three cases where threats were made to public officials. Annapolis’ log shows police located their target in seven of the 17 cases in which the equipment was used since late 2011. But Annapolis Police couldn’t find their target in the case of a Pizza Boli’s employee who reported being robbed of 15 chicken wings and three subs while out on delivery in March. In that case, police got a court order, according to the police log. The value of the wings and subs totaled $56.77.
