Man Allegedly Tracked Woman with Smart Phone Spyware

NY - Town of Crawford police have charged a Middletown man with multiple felonies after they said he installed spyware on a Pine Bush woman's smart phone, accessed all her data and tracked her movements.
Michael Biasi, 44, turned himself in to police Wednesday afternoon and was charged with eavesdropping, computer trespass, unlawful duplication of computer material and criminal possession of computer-related materials – all felonies, according to Crawford police Lt. Dominick Blasko.
Blasko said Crawford police, with the help of the New York State Police Computer Crimes Unit, began looking into the tracking a month or two ago after a woman who previously had known Biasi came to police suspecting the eavesdropping was taking place. Blasko said police believe Biasi had been tracking the woman for “an extended period of time.” (more)
