Child predators who piggy-back on someone else's WiFi signal makes it a difficult and lengthy process to trace crimes, but the Aircheck sorts through variables for investigators and removes some of the hassle.

"It provides us and additional layer of certainty that the person we are targeting is, in fact, the suspect that we are looking for," said Sgt. Dave Mathers. "We don't have to go in blindly anymore."
