Police kept it a secret, but now it’s front and center in a lawsuit. It’s called “Stingray,” a high-tech way of breaking into cell phones.
WJZ’s Alex DeMetrick reports the suit alleges police are breaking the law.
Earlier this month, Kerron Andrews was reunited with his mother. Andrews had just been released from jail, where he had been held for two years while waiting to go on trial for attempted murder.
Now, he’s suing about how he was arrested, and the Baltimore Police Department is the defendant.
“It has long been the law of this land that a search warrant is required and a warrant must be issued by a judge,” said James Astrachan, Andrews’ lawyer.
