The owner of a Massachusetts kayak rental business was fed up with several thefts over the past few weeks, so planted GPS devices in some of the roughly 150 kayaks he keeps at Hopkinton State Park. On Monday, the owner, Michael Aghajananian, got an alert that one of the kayaks was on the move. He called police and met them at a Framingham shopping plaza, where they spotted a car with two kayaks on top. Matthew Alexander was arrested after getting into the car. Police say they found 15 more kayaks at Alexander’s Southborough home. Alexander, 33, was released without bail after pleading not guilty to receiving stolen property. (AP)
