    So many more creative things he could have done with that thing.

    If I were him, I'd pay the guys a few extra bucks to check for them every time I went in for an oil change.

    I guess they've gotten too lazy to just tail people. Much easier and foolproof to just slap the old GPS on them.

    We don't really have any privacy or rights anymore. 1984 was a really great "How To," book.

    Exactly. The date was just off a few years.

    So the moral of this story is to QUICKLY smash, stick it to the UPS truck, or dispose of it (bottom of a lake) in some manner. Don't hang on to it.

    Provide proof of ownership.

    Then we'll talk rent and cartage charges. The going rate is $1K per mile along with daily surcharges.

    What do you mean you retrieved valuable information from it too? That'll cost you extra.

    Yup. An appropriate answer would have been "I don't know you from Adam's house cat, and unless your name is on the transmitter, it's mine until you prove otherwise. AIFTG?!"

    WOW. Maybe he was/is a terrorist. But a U.S. citizen for sure.

    The means just cannot justify the ends. :censored:

    I'm sure the FBI would be ROTFLTAO if he'd stuck that thing on a vehicle entering a military base. No, he shouldn't have done that.

    What? Cant find your tracking device? Did you call the GPS company's tech support? I'd be asking the manufacturer for my money back, sounds like it was defective.

    Oh yeah, you're trespassing, get a warrant. Go away revenuers.
