Police: Phelps man placed GPS tracker on victim’s vehicle, sent threatening text messages for weeks

Police say a 27-year-old Phelps man was arrested this week after he installed a GPS tracking device on a person’s vehicle.

Chad Featherly, 27, was charged with aggravated criminal contempt and aggravated family offense- both felonies.

Investigators say Featherly placed a GPS tracking device under a resident’s car to track their location. The tracking occurred between June 2, and June 23.

He then sent threatening text messages to the victim- some of which included and referenced the victim’s location.

Featherly was processed without incident and will answer the charges at a later date.
