Alexandria Police investigating tracking device found in woman’s car

Alexandria Police are investigating a resident who found a tracking device inside of her vehicle.

On June 20 (Monday), the resident was loading her infant child into her car at her West End apartment building when she heard a beeping noise. She found an Apple AirTag in the rear pocket of the passenger seat, and then called the police the next day, according to a search warrant affidavit.

The resident told police that she’d recently separated from her husband “due to various domestic incidents in Loudoun County,” according to a search warrant affidavit.

The resident told police that she did not consent to any tracking devices to be placed in the car, which is registered to she and her husband. She also said that she is the only person to drive the car.

The unauthorized use of an electric tracking device is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and/or a fine of $2,500.
