How do you pin a badge on a tortoise?

It’s been a strange week for tracking tech. In an unlikely turn of events, police arrested a suspected marijuana-grower after a box tortoise with a GPS tracker attached to its shell accidentally strayed slowly into a secret cannabis patch.

The tortoise was being tracked for “research purposes” in a park in Washington DC, local news reported… A ranger in charge of the reptile made the discovery when he retrieved it from a remote area of the park. US Park Police set up surveillance and later arrested a 19-year-old teenager on suspicion of growing the plants.
