According to the New York Post a sting involving a GPS tracking unit has resulted in the exposure of a Diamond District mailman thief possibly responsible for multiple stolen packages containing jewelry over the last several months.  The mailman was taken into custody and later released on bail.

The sting worked by placing a GPS tracker in a package designed to send an alert when opened.   When the suspected mail carrier opened the package, which he thought contained diamonds, authorities were notified of his exact location.

GPS tracking of packages is not only for police stings.  Businesses often use GPS tracking to track their deliveries and provide their customers with detailed delivery information.  This results in improved customer relations.
