By The Prophet of Life
When Delvin Barnes abducted the woman walking down a dark Philadelphia street, late at night, she kicked and screamed but he overpowered her and dragged her into his car anyway. When she kicked out some of the windows of his Ford Taurus he was upset but not worried. He didn’t know he was being videotaped.
His history of violence and assaults against women didn’t worry him. He didn’t think he would be caught. He was committing crimes in different states and figured the different police jurisdictions would put the crimes together let alone collaborate in his capture but they did,
Within days, they knew who Barnes was but they didn’t know where he was. While conducting interviews at the dealership who sold Barnes his car they discovered that a worried salesman at the dealership secretly put a GPS tracker on Barnes car. He did this, so they could repossess the car if Barnes fell behind on payments. Barnes bad credit worried the salesman.
Police used the GPS to track Barnes to a motel in Maryland where they spotted him in the car with his kidnap victim. A Ford Taurus costs several thousand dollars. The GPS cost fifty dollars. Capturing a violent kidnapper, priceless. Did violent predator Barnes ever imagine he would be undone by a mild mannered but worried car salesman? Probably not.
