Caught Spying on Student, FBI Demands GPS Tracker Back

WIRED: "A California student got a visit from the FBI this week after he found a secret GPS tracking device on his car, and a friend posted photos of it online. The post prompted wide speculation about whether the device was real, whether the young Arab-American was being targeted in a terrorism investigation and what the authorities would do.

It took just 48 hours to find out: The device was real, the student was being secretly tracked and the FBI wanted their expensive device back, the student told in an interview Wednesday.

The answer came when half-a-dozen FBI agents and police officers appeared at Yasir Afifi’s apartment complex in Santa Clara, California, on Tuesday demanding he return the device."

The story is too old to be commented.

So they attached something to his personal property and want it back? I'd be saying no. If I found something like that I'd break it then let them figure out what happened. If they ask for it I'd be like oh, that part didn't seem to have any function so I through it out.
