The Supreme Court Will Weigh In On Cell Phone Tracking

posted by Mike Salois -

The justices are scheduled to hear arguments on whether police need a search warrant for cellphone location information routinely collected by wireless companies. The case, Carpenter v. United States, involves a massive string of cellphone thefts and armed robberies at Radio Shack stores in Michigan and Ohio.

Police tied the thieves to the holdups by matching cellphone location data from the ringleader's wireless provider and dates of the robberies.
