Covert GPS Trackers Now Illegal In Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

The use of covert GPS trackers is now illegal because of one state lawmaker’s personal experience.

Representative Mark McBride introduced the bill after he found a tracking device on his truck last year. McBride says OSBI learned the device belonged to a private investigator, but he says he doesn’t know who hired the investigator or why. McBride suspects the wind industry was responsible, he’s suing the investigator now.

Under the new law tracking, someone with a GPS device is considered stalking, a misdemeanor which carries a $1,000 fine and 1 year of jail time.

The House passed his bill 74-7 in March, while the Senate passed it 40-0 in April. Fallin signed the bill into law Tuesday.
