A man in Vermont was charged after he allegedly stalked a woman using an Apple AirTag.
The Vermont State Police said that Alan Bjerke, 62, allegedly placed an AirTag behind the license plate of a woman’s car.
Officials say that Bjerke placed the AirTag in an attempt to lawfully take possession of the car because of a debt payment.
However, police said that the man didn’t have authorization or a warrant to track the woman’s location.
