07 March 2023- A Shepardstown, WV man is free on an unsecured bail after police allegedly find a tracking device put onto his ex and mother of his child’s car. Kerrick Stephenson Reisbig is charged with misdemeanor stalking. Reisbig is free on an unsecured bail of $50,000.
On February 12th around 4:45pm, PSP-McConnellsburg Troopers were dispatched to a home in Warfordsburg for a possible stalking incident. At the home, police interviewed the victim, who allegedly said she had just completed a child custody exchange with her ex-boyfriend Kerrick Reisbig at a Sheetz in Hancock, Maryland. The victim allegedly said she saw Reisbig bend down on the drivers side of the vehicle and heard a banging as she thought something hit the car.
The victim then went back to her home, where she allegedly noticed dirt missing from the side of her rear driver side door. After looking under the door, the victim allegedly noticed a black box that was clean attached to the dirty vehicle. Taking a picture of the box, the victim then allegedly reverse image searched it on the internet and found it to be a tracking device. Knowing no one would have her consent to put such a device, the victim allegedly called the police.
The victim allegedly had a PFA against Reisbig that had since expired but she didn’t want any contact with him unless it was about their child.
Police then allegedly took possession of the black box, finding it to be a Spark Nano 7 GPS tracking device. A search warrant for purchaser information, subscriber information, and other relevant data was executed on February 22nd to Brickhouse Security, the manufacturer of the device. The warrant allegedly yielded data showing Reisbig activated the device with a three month subscription the day of the incident and that GPS data showed the tracking device to be at the Sheetz store, the victim’s home, and PSP-McConnellsburg as well as other locations.
Reisbig is free on an unsecured bail of $50,000. His preliminary hearing is set for March 20th.
