How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Judge: DEA May Not Track Cell Phones without a Warrant

courtroomBy Steve Neavling

A federal judge delivered a major blow to the DEA’s use of Stingrays, which enable law enforcement to collect evidence by using fake phone masts.

U.S, District Court Judge William Pauley III said the use of Stingrays would violate the Fourth Amendment unless a warrant is granted, the Register reports. 

The decision comes after a Maryland judge made the same ruling in 2015.

“Absent a search warrant, the Government may not turn a citizen’s cell phone into a tracking device,” the judge said.

Stingrays enable authorities to listen to conversations and access information on phones.
