A concrete company boss in London was arrested for allegedly installing GPS tracker on his wife’s car, whom he is accusing of having an affair with another man.
Steven Brown, 51, became suspicious of his wife, Nichola, 44, and her friend Mark Compton, a fireman, since last year. This prompted him to install a tracking device on her car, which is considered illegal in the country if it causes fear and anxiety.

Mrs. Brown and Mr. Compton discovered the GPS tracker hidden underneath their car last month. According to sources, Mr. and Mrs. Brown have separated because of the allegations, and both are now with someone else.
An employee of Easy Mix Concrete, Mr. Brown’s company, says that his employer has already moved on and that the situation was just exaggerated. According to him, Mrs. Brown and Mr. Compton have been together since 2013. He also doesn’t believe that Steve had secretly installed a tracking device on the car.
Neighbors attested that Steve and Nichola lived in the area for three years before they tied the knot. They heard that Nichola has another man but claimed they haven’t seen him yet and that the Brown couple are divorcing.
Hampshire Police representative said that Steve is currently on bail. He was arrested on grounds of stalking.
Because of its tracking capability, GPS systems like Trackimo have been used by husbands or wives in monitoring their suspicious spouses. While nobody has been jailed yet for spying on their partners, legal experts recommend to ask permission first from the person concerned before tracking anyone.
