A Dowelltown man faces charges for hiding a tracking device in his wife’s car while he was under a restraining order for allegedly beating her.The husband, Carl Michael Fleming, 62, is charged with electronic tracking of a motor vehicle.His charge comes after his wife was advised to take her car to a garage for an inspection because Fleming knew exactly where she had been. Upon inspection, mechanics found a land/sea tracking key inside the dash area of the car.“The person who found the device said the green light was a battery indicator and that they last for about a week,” the warrant maintains, noting it was revealed the tracker needs its batteries changed at least once a week to remain functional. “Someone without her consent is coming to where she is living and changing the batteries on the tracking device.”The victim believes her husband is the one who planted the tracker and is also the one who is changing the batteries at regular intervals.
