Sun Prairie man puts GPS unit on vehicle to track Verona woman, police say

A Sun Prairie security guard was arrested Monday after using a GPS unit to track a Verona woman, according to a release from the Verona Police Department.

The Verona Police Department received information on Sunday about a man who may have been tracking a Verona resident via a GPS unit, officials said.

The victim granted Verona police officers permission to check her vehicle and a GPS tracking device was located, according to the release.

The man’s vehicle, a black Kia Optima, was found at his residence, where police found additional evidence, police said. Vidlock was socially acquainted with the victim.

According to the release, several residents of the Cathedral Point Neighborhood had previously reported
33-year-old Kyle Vidlock’s black Kia Optima as a suspicious vehicle, and members of the Verona Police Department previously contacted Vidlock as a result of the tips.

Vidlock, a security guard from Sun Prairie, was arrested Monday night on tentative charges of stalking and placing a GPS device on a vehicle.

Vidlock has been released from jail pending a charging decision by the Dane County District Attorney’s Office.
