Tracking Devices on Automobiles

United States v. Garcia, No. 06-2741 (February 2, 2007): The police attached a tracking device to Mr. Garcia’s truck and learned valuable information about the location of his drug lab. The Court found no Fourth Amendment violation. Since the police could have legitimately followed him by tailing him in a police car, they could equally make use of modern technology.
