On 04.21.2014 at 0915 hours the Northern York County Regional Police Department responded to a report of a subject parked in a vehicle using binoculars and apparently looking in the direction of the Dover Elementary School.

Patrol units located the vehicle and subject at a convenience store at the Dover square.  The male was identified as Thomas Allar age 68, of 48 North Main Street in Yoe.  Allar initially advised Officers that he was in the area doing research on a planned development in which he is an investor.  Officers were able to quickly dispel the story and Allar advised the Officers that he had been spying on a female that lived in the area.

Officers were able to determine that Allar had in possession the following items;

  • A magnetic GPS tracking system
  • Binoculars
  • Latex gloves
  • Plastic wrap
  • 6 pages of print outs of a vehicle location and handwritten notes

Allar advised that he had met the female at a book store in York in 2013.  The two had lunch several times together, but the female ended the relationship.

Allar advised that sometime around 04.08.2014 he installed the magnetic GPS tracking system on the female’s car to track her movement and to see if she was dating another man.  Allar removed the device on 04.17.2014 from the vehicle.

Officers were able to locate the female safe at her home.  The female victim advised that she did in fact go out with Allar for several lunches.  The victim had no idea that Allar was following her and tracking her movements with the GPS device.

Thomas Allar was taken into custody and transported to Central Booking.  He was arraigned on the following charges;

  • Harassment
  • Stalking
  • Wiretapping
  • Possession of wiretapping equipment
  • Possession of instruments of crime

This is an active investigation.  Additional information will be released when it becomes available.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the Northern York County Regional Police Department at 717.292.3647 or use the crime tip reporting portion of this website.
