SARASOTA, Fla. -- According to the Associated Press, police in the U.S. may be intercepting phone calls or text messages to find suspects using a new technology tool known as Stingray.

But they are refusing to turn over details about its use or heavily censoring files when they do.

Stingray pretends it's a cellphone tower, secretly giving details of a phone's location and information about calls and text messages.

ABC 7's Max Winitz is taking a closer look at how the device works and will have the latest tonight on ABC 7 News at 6.
