HAWORTH — Multiple GPS devices placed on vehicles in and around this Bergen County township led to the arrest last week of a lawyer from Wyckoff, according to information released by county prosecutors on Thursday.
Brett Halloran, 41, was charged last Friday with fourth-degree stalking and was released following an initial court appearance, the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office said in a release.
Halloran was identified by authorities as married and employed as an attorney.
Prosecutors said on Aug. 23, an individual reported to the Haworth Police Department that a GPS tracker had been placed on his vehicle.
Subsequent investigation revealed that four devices in total were put on vehicles "in a repeated and ongoing pattern of stalking against an individual," according to the prosecutor's office, and Halloran was identified as the person responsible.
The release did not specify any potential motive for the alleged stalking.
The prosecutor's office did not disclose any potential future court dates for Halloran at this time.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?
We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein
to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.
The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
