ClickOrlando A woman is accused of planting a tracking device on her ex-boyfriend’s vehicle so she could stalk him for months, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. The victim said Erica Capps, the mother of his 18-month-old child, would show up uninvited to places where he was, even though he never told her where he was, the report said. During the first incident, on Sept. 18, the victim was visiting a friend in Altamonte Springs when he got a message from Capps telling him to go outside, according to authorities. Capps began yelling at the victim when he went outside because she was upset he was at a woman’s house. On Oct. 18, the victim said he was at another friend’s home in Maitland when Capps showed up uninvited and initiated a verbal argument, according to the affidavit. Deputies said at the end of October the victim was shopping at Best Buy in Sanford when Capps approached him and demanded to know who he was with and what he was doing. The victim was at Walgreens in Altamonte Springs on Nov. 8 but then had to leave because he saw Capps approaching him, the report said. Capps followed the victim to his friend’s apartment and initiated a verbal argument, according to authorities. Deputies said the victim contacted them on Tuesday to report the incidents after he found a GPS tracking device on his vehicle. He also said that Capps would message him screenshots of his locations and ask why he was there. Capps was arrested Friday on a stalking charge. She has since been released from jail on bond under the condition that she have no contact with the victim. Capps told News 6 on Monday that the incident was a “child custody case that got blown way out of proportion.” “And that’s all going to be dropped because it’s a big misunderstanding. We’re actually going through a custody battle so that was definitely misconstrued by somebody, hence why I am no longer in jail at this time,” Capps said. “That’s all I have to say at this time, so that’s the story.”
Imagine the horror of breaking up with a girl, but your ex knows where you are all times, and keeps showing up to your locations uninvited then provoking fights with you. I would be accusing my friends of tipping off my crazy ex-girlfriend about my whereabouts, I would be racking my brain trying to remember if she had psychic powers, only to discover that she had gone Liam Neeson in Taken and planted a tracking device on my car. I think back on some of the crazy women I’ve dated in the past, who thought that they were private detectives, and attempted to hack into my email and social media accounts looking for that “gotcha” moment and I am very thankful that I was living in a city and did not drive my car often or one of them definitely would have used a tracking device and caught be red handed. Someone else knowing your location at all times is creepy, we should ban tracking devices, except for use by law enforcement and Liam Neeson.
