Bryan Conner filed a written statement with police Jan 5. He included in the statement that he had sold an inactive GPS tracking device to his father. Less than two week later, on Dec. 21, 2012, Conner told his son he lost the device and he wanted information so he could activate and locate it.
The son did not provide the information requested, police reported.

He said that his father, who he believes is mentally unfit, has no affiliation with the business. He added that the Conner family has been in the jewelry business for more than 100 years, and he hopes his the company will have the opportunity to continue its service the community.
