Police Find Six Stolen Cars Inside Rahway Warehouse

RAHWAY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Police uncovered six stolen vehicles, including two from Maryland, at a northern New Jersey warehouse.

Union County police used a GPS device to track a stolen Toyota to the Sivomar Trucking and Shipping Warehouse on Elston Street in Rahway.

A stolen Audi was parked next to the Toyota outside.

Authorities told The Star-Ledger of Newark two motorcycles stolen in June 2010 from Hyattsville, Md., and two vehicles taken in armed carjackings in Newark were inside.

The warehouse owner was charged with receiving stolen property.

    Great Public Service! (GPS)

    Sure GPS tracking is great to track criminals and solve crimes. However, what happens when they turn that technology against the average citizen. You’d be surprised at the kind of information that can be extrapolated just by knowing someones every move. Even worse what if criminals and bad hackers use this to track you and know when you are away from home or to see who’s having an affair to try to extort them. JACKPOT! I think it should be illegal for anyone to use GPS to track anything unless they have explicitly given consent beforehand and authorized it in writing. It shouldn’t be “oh my car was stolen… sure track it with gps” I have enough commentary to fill a book so I’ll stop here.

    i think they (the cops) set this up to justify the use of g.p.s yes for this but they do not want if for that purpose

    you know I have problems with big brother tracking me. However, in this case, the ends justify the means
