“Stingrays” can track the location of wireless phones, tablets, and computers that utilize cell phone networks. Some can intercept calls and text messages, and some are suspected to be capable of delivering malicious spyware to personal devices. Law enforcement agencies have given the public very little information about how and when they are being used and have even withheld information from judges and criminal defense attorneys.
