A local resident admitted to placing a tracking device on a woman’s vehicle

Casper, WY – His name is Jacob Karl Babock and he appeared in Natrona County District Court on Friday.

The suspect pleaded guilty to single counts of stalking along with a count of misdemeanor interference. A sentencing hearing has not yet been scheduled. The suspect was arrested in September.

A woman with whom Babcock had been romantically involved contacted Casper police in early September and said Babcock violated a protection order.

The woman found it very concerning Babcock knew exactly where she was at each time he had located her, as she had not given him her location or any indication of where she may have been.

Following the incident, police found a GPS tracking device on the woman’s car, an allegation Babock admitted to during Friday’s hearing. He admitted to placing the tracking device on the woman’s vehicle.
