A York County man faces stalking and other charges after police say he admitted to spying on a woman and tracking her with a GPS device for more than a week.
Thomas Allar, 68, of Yoe, caught the attention of officers Monday when he was seen using binoculars and apparently looking in the direction of the Dover Elementary School, Northern York County Regional police said.
Allar initially claimed he was researching a planned development in which he had invested, but eventually admitted to spying on a woman who lived in the area, police said.
Allar told officers he had met the woman in York last year and had lunch with her several times before she ended the relationship. He said he put the magnetic tracking device on her car to see if she was dating another man, according to police.
The woman, who was found safe in her home, had no idea that Allar was following her and tracking her movements with the GPS device, police said.
In addition to stalking, he was charged with harassment, wiretapping, possession of wiretapping equipment, and possession of instruments of crime.
He was released on $25,000 bail and has a preliminary hearing scheduled May 7.
