When he joined a friend in home invasion, Steven Tubbs was wearing an ankle bracelet with a GPS tracking device. That’s right, Tubbs was out on patrol for a May 2011 robbery, use of a deadly weapon, and terroristic threats. His ankle bracelet contained a GS detection system that could pinpoint his whereabouts at any given moment, including at the time he committed the crime. Tubbs is being held at the corrections center on a half million dollar bond. He was booked on charges of robbery, possession of a controlled substance, and bond review, police said.
The residents at the home said they were awakened by two intruders who demanded money. Police said credit cards taken from the home were being used shortly after the robbery.
