Thanks to a global positioning system device, a career thief has found his way back to prison.
Wade D. Arvidson, 42, of Eagan, pleaded guilty to theft charges after being connected to a nighttime business burglary through a GPS device that authorities had planted on his motorcycle. The agreement was announced Monday.
Eagan police, suspecting Arvidson's involvement in another property crime, got a judge's permission to attach the tracking device to Arvidson's motorcycle last summer.

This loser must have been really surprised when the police nabbed him.
Comments or opinions - anyone?

WELCOME TO FREE REPUBLIC'S MINNESOTA PING LIST!
Let me know if you want on or off this list!
This ought to be standard procedure (GPS tracking devices), for ANY repeat/habitual criminals. Put a tracking bracelet on 'em, and let that be part of their sentence. It would not require an extended period, as these repeat/habitual criminals won't last 5 years before continuing their acts.
Too bad they didn't slip one under Clintoon's forehead...
We don't want to know where that's been...
Nah. Implant a chip inside their chest cavity near the heart. That way, they can't (or won't) dig it out. While yer at it, put in a small radio detonated explosive charge small enough to be safe to anyone near, but one that would turn their insides into Jell-O. Put the firing frequencies onboard into the GPS chips of other habitual felons. That way, when they get together to plan or do a job, the problem resolves itself.
Great minds think alike. There are somethings we are better off not knowing.
That is one of the most evil things I've ever heard!
BTW, I absolutely approve of it!
