SANFORD, Florida — Some people just don’t know when to let go.
A Florida woman has been charged with putting a tracking device on her ex-boyfriend’s car and then stalking him around town for months.
Erica Capps allegedly would show up at places where the boyfriend — with whom she has an 18-month-old daughter — was, even though he hadn’t told her he was going to be there. She also allegedly sent him pictures of places he was visiting, demanding to know why he was there.
In September, cops say Capps turned up at the home of a woman the boyfriend was visiting and then texted him to come outside where she began arguing with him about being there.
A month later she allegedly showed up at another friends house and started an argument with her ex. A few weeks later, she confronted the boyfriend at a Best Buy, demanding to know who he was there with, cops said.
Earlier this month, Capps allegedly chased the man from a Walgreens to a friend’s house where she started arguing with him.
The situation came to a head last week, when the man discovered the tracking device on his car and called police. Capps was then arrested on a stalking charged and released on the condition she doesn’t contact the man.
Capps told WKMG-TV that the whole matter was really about a custody battle that had gotten out of hand.
“We are actually going through a custody battle, so that was definitely misconstrued by somebody, hence why I am no longer in jail,” Capps told the station.
