Brian Talley

CAMDEN, Del. – A Magnolia man is charged after allegedly installing a tracking device on an ex-girlfriend’s vehicle. Delaware State Police say 48-year-old Brian C. Talley turned himself in on Troop 3 Thursday.

On November 9, police reported that a female victim reported to police officers that a GPS device had fallen from her vehicle in the parking lot of a shop in Harrington. The victim told police she was concerned that Talley had installed the device in her vehicle. She handed the device over to police officers who opened a criminal investigation.

Investigators say Talley drove past the victim’s home on October 3 while having a male visitor in the house and later contacted the victim about the visit. According to police, the relationship between the victim and Talley had recently ended. Then, on October 10, the victim said she saw a high-beam vehicle slowly drive past her home. The victim later identified the vehicle as Talley’s property.

Detectives identified Talley as the owner of the GPS tracking device after the Justice Department subpoenaed the company selling the devices. Police confirmed that Talley purchased the tracking device on October 2nd.

Talley is now charged with stalking and invasion of privacy. He was tried in the Magistrates’ Court 2 and released on a $ 1,500 secured loan. Talley was instructed not to have any contact with the victim.
