Roesler: Big Brother Cops On Your Cell Phone?

Staci Lehman, who works for the Spokane Regional Transportation Council, was out on Tuesday snapping some photos of a soon-to-be-moved highway weigh station on Interstate 90 near the Washington/Idaho state line. “We were just doing a Powerpoint on some of the projects that are funded in our master transportation plan,” said co-worker Jeff Selle. Lehman, driving her own car, pulled into the “pretty much deserted” spot, took a couple of photos, and continued on her way. About 10 minutes later, she says, her privately-owned cell phone rang. On the phone: a state trooper wanting to know why she had been taking those pictures/Rich Roesler, Eye On Olympia. More here

Question: Should Stacy be wary that the Washington State Patrol tracked her down so fast via her cell phone?
