A man came to the Forest Park Police Department after he believed someone placed a GPS tracking device on the undercarriage of his vehicle, something he said was possibly related to an ongoing lawsuit.
According to a police report, the man’s vehicle was parked in the 400 block of Elgin Avenue on Jan. 13 when he was informed that “a white male wearing nice clothing” stepped out of a luxury car and placed something under his vehicle before driving away.
The man then retrieved the device, which was wrapped in a grocery bag with “red and black wires protruding,” and brought it to the police department. The man told officers his lawyer instructed him to come to the police to report the incident, but the man was unwilling to divulge any details about the lawsuit he believed was related to the supposed tracking device’s use.
The suspicious device was inspected and taken into evidence.
This information was obtained from police reports filed by the Forest Park Police Department. Unless otherwise indicated, anybody named in these reports has only been charged with a crime. These cases have not been adjudicated.
