West Salem man charged with using GPS device to track ex-girlfriend
LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) — Prosecutors have accused a West Salem man of using a GPS device to track his ex-girlfriend.
The La Crosse Tribune reports that 41-year-old Matthew Robinson was charged Friday with stalking, misuse of a GPS device, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct.
According to court documents, the ex-girlfriend called police after Robinson started messaging her about her vehicle’s location and showed up at her friend’s house March 3 in Blair when he shouldn’t have known where she was.
The woman searched her vehicle and found a GPS unit in the spare tire compartment.
According to court records, Robinson’s next hearing is scheduled for March 12.
