Police in Vermont are warning the public about car thieves in Montreal placing GPS trackers on vehicles with Vermont license plates. It might seem like an ironic twist considering people put trackers on their own vehicle because of car theft, but we’ve seen this sort of thing before.

The infamous Belltown Hellcat has been busted.

The warning came from Burlington Police Department after two residents reported finding GPS trackers on their vehicles after they spent time across the border in Montreal, reports the Times Colonist.

Apparently, these thieves are using inexpensive Apple AirTags as well as other trackers to see where vehicles are kept in Vermont. This sort of thing isn’t contained strictly to Montreal, Canada, or even North America. So no matter where you live, you need to watch out for these schemes.
