A mechanic’s disturbing video of what he found beneath a woman’s car during an inspection is going viral on TikTok.
User @kaos_noe explained in a post that his customer was afraid she had a “tracker in her vehicle from a crazy ex-boyfriend,” so he decided to take a closer look for her.
“I didn’t think anybody would actually do that, but … oh what the heck?” he said, revealing a small tracking device beneath his customer’s car near the wheel. “You, my guy, have issues.”
In the video, he then scanned the QR code on the device and searched a number associated with it online to confirm that it was, in fact, some sort of tracker. He also included the hashtag #someoneisgoingtojail in the caption.
So far, the video has more than 250,000 likes and 2.4 million views.
The mechanic has not yet provided an update on the situation, so it’s not clear if the person who allegedly placed the device will face any charges.
Commenters were thankful that he posted the video to at least spread awareness about this kind of creepy and potentially illegal behavior.
“Thank you for checking and not blowing it off. You might have saved her life,” one user wrote.
“I’m glad you found it, but never second guess a woman who suspects safety issues around an ex until it is proved safe beyond a shadow of a doubt,” another said.
