GRETNA, La. (AP) - Police have arrested a private investigator accused of illegally installing a tracking device on a vehicle.

Gretna police tell The Times-Picayune (https://bit.ly/1PeXu4S) 38-year-old David Centanni was booked Tuesday on a charge of using a prohibited tracking device.

Police say a man contacted authorities Tuesday, worried about a man that seemed to be following him. Detectives directed the man to check underneath his vehicle for anything that looked suspicious.

Gretna Police Deputy Chief Anthony Christiana says he found a tracking device attached to the frame of his truck.

Detectives arrested Centanni later that day. He identified himself as a private investigator and admitted to installing the tracker.

Christiana says GPS tracking isn’t illegal, but state law bans its use without a person’s consent.

It isn’t clear if Centanni has an attorney.
