Elusive Suspect Found After Months in AirTag Car Tracking Case
To begin the investigation, law enforcement officials obtained a search and seizure warrant to access subscriber information associated with the AirTag’s serial number. It took several months to trace the device back to a certain individual named Anthony Magro, who was unknown to the victim.
However, when attempts were made to contact Magro, he was initially unreachable as he claimed he did not drive and needed transportation to meet with the authorities.
Despite efforts to reach Magro, including tracking his new phone number, he remained elusive, leading investigators to obtain an arrest warrant for electronic stalking. Finally, on February 7th, Magro was located and arrested at the age of 25. He has since been released from jail after posting a $10,000 bond.
The case highlights the serious implications of electronic stalking and the lengths law enforcement may go to in order to apprehend suspects. It also underscores the importance of vigilance and taking action when individuals suspect they are being tracked or monitored without consent.
Despite the lengthy time frame between the initial report and the arrest, the persistence of investigators ultimately led to the apprehension of the alleged perpetrator.
