Yes, if you have evidence of the fact that the PI attempted to put a tracker on your car you can both sue the PI company civilly and file a police report - after which the prosecutor would decide if they want to charge the PI criminally. Frankly, that's a gross invasion of privacy, if it can be proven that this is what the PI was doing. Please let me know if I've answered your question. If I have answered your question, if you wouldn't mind, could you please take a moment to submit a rating so that I receive credit for working with you. If you have any follow up questions I would be *happy* to answer them. Experts only get credit for the time and effort we spend on our answers if you rate positively - 5 stars is definitely appreciated but not required! It DOES NOT cost you anything at all to submit a rating; it just allows me to get credit for helping you - otherwise I get no credit at all. You CAN still ask follow up questions after rating. There may be a lag between your question and my answer; this is because I'm either not at my computer or helping someone else but I assure you I will ALWAYS come back and answer your question.
