A Lowell man was arrested Tuesday for stalking a Winchester woman after he allegedly put a GPS tracking device under her car and tried to break into her home, police said.

The arrest of Shaun Tyman followed a month-long investigation, spurred by a complaint from the Winchester woman, who told authorities a person was caught on video footage attempting to enter her home, according to a release from Winchester police.

“That same video showed the same individual crawling underneath the victim’s car,” the release said. “After a search of the vehicle’s undercarriage a GPS tracking device was found attached to the frame.”

Police analyzed the gadget and several subpoenas were issued that identified a suspect, according to authorities.

After obtaining a search warrant, Winchester and Lowell police searched Tyman’s Acton Street home Tuesday and found evidence that led to his arrest, the release said.

Tyman, who was expected to be arraigned in Woburn District Court Wednesday, faces charges of attempted breaking and entering and stalking.
