Spouse Tracking

I don’t think this Jacksonville, Florida man knew what he was getting himself into when he placed a GPS tracking device on the car of his estranged wife. He probably thought he was somehow telling her that he love him. Apparently both she and the police have a different opinion about that type of activity.

A 45-year-old Westside Jacksonville man was arrested late Monday on a charge of stalking after a GPS tracking device was just one of the high-tech ways used to keep track of his estranged wife.

James Craig Crosby of the 8100 block of Niska Trail was booked into the Duval County jail just before midnight and was out on $2,500 bail nine hours later, according to jail records.

The man’s estranged wife, 39-year-old Christina Crosby, walked into the Zone 4 police substation at 6 p.m. Monday with a portable GPS tracker in her hand after discovering it attached to her car, the arrest report said. She said she was suspicious how James Crosby “always knew where to find her.” She also said someone tampered with her Facebook account, deleting a male friend’s name and adding her estranged husband’s.

In an Oct. 26 incident she told police she was at the Wesconnett public library on 103rd Street with their 7-year-old son when she looked up and her estranged husband was standing there. He left before police arrived. When she went home that night, all of her underwear had been stolen, but there was no sign of forced entry at the home. Someone also was monitoring her home computer use through a remote logger.

Police said they questioned James Crosby at his home at 10:15 p.m. Monday, learning the GPS device had been planted on the woman’s car almost three month’s ago and monitored 20 times on his home computer.

Maybe this guy took the creepily famous song Every Breath You Take by the Police a little too literally. He was tracking her car, her computer, and probably her cell phone. That does not say I love you, no matter what millions of women think when Sting sings it.

Creepiest. Song. Ever. Well maybe not ever. This song is way creepier:

You have to admit, tracking someone with GPS does not say I love you!
