One of the oddest uses of GPS tracking I found while doing research for the book, GPS Declassified, was the case of a community center in Wellington, Florida, that used it to catch a thief who stole baby Jesus from its nativity scene.
First, I was struck by the fact that their manger had been robbed multiple times, prompting the center’s staff to attach the secret GPS tracker. This kind of theft has also been reported in numerous cities, so it’s not an isolated phenomenon.
Then, I wondered who such thieves would be. For the faithful, such an act is unthinkable. For others, what is the appeal? I guess they sell them. Be careful buying nativity scenes at yard sales and flea markets.
