GPS law enforcement

A suspect  currently being held without bond at a downtown
Chicago’s Metropolitan Correctional Center on suspicion of robbing a bank found
out that when you take the cash in a sack you get something else that you do
not want, a GPS tracking device.

The device, which helped agents to locate the suspect after he allegedly made off
with roughly $400 from a Bank of America branch in Evanston, Illinois last
week, was included in the bag by the bank staff.  The GPS tracker emitted a signal
precise enough that it allowed a team led by the FBI and the Evanston police
force to track him after he left the scene of the crime on foot. The device
tracked him all the way to Chicago before he was arrested.
