One armed robbery suspect in California did not know who he was dealing with when he set out to rob a convenience store at a gas station. This criminal was prepared with a ski mask and sawed-off firearm, but he could not have been prepared for the fact that his movements were being tracked by a GPS device.
A GPS tracking device had been placed on the suspect’s vehicle and this device made note when the suspect made a stop two blocks away from the convenience store. the GPS tracking device then recorded the time that suspect left that area two blocks away from the scene of the crime and also recorded when the suspect arrived at the crime scene itself.
Law enforcement officials were able to make good use of the information provided by the GPS tracking device. They were able to get DNA evidence from a stop the suspect made after robbing the convenience store. If the tracking device had not alerted them to the criminal’s movements, they may not have been able to find such evidence. With the help of GPS tracking technology, they were able to get enough evidence to arrest this criminal. Among the evidence found was what was called an “imitation firearm.”
So while this criminal did not use the real thing, we can tell you that GPS tracking is indeed the real thing. GPs tracking technology can make a huge difference in the gathering of evidence and processing a case. Being able to track a criminal’s movements can make all the difference when it comes to getting that critical evidence need to get an arrest warrant. With a GPS tracking device from Rocky Mountain Tracking, you can be instantly be notified when the subject is within a certain proximity to a predetermined location.
