Police in Burlington, Vermont, warned fellow citizens traveling to Montreal after GPS tracking devices were found in cars returning home.

In a press release issued last Monday, police explained that at least two citizens have discovered hidden Airtags on their vehicles after visiting the metropolis in recent months.

“Canadian authorities are aware that this technology is being used for criminal activity,” Burlington police warned, without naming the scourge of car thefts in Quebec and Ontario.

Authorities urge motorists who spot AirTags to call police so an officer can come and collect evidence.

Popular with car owners who can track the location of their property anywhere, Airtags and other devices have also become essential tools for thieves. They can ask when they see a vehicle of interest in a parking lot, for example to find out the address of the owner of the vehicle. They can go straight and steal the locks from the house.
