Wellington, FL asked in Criminal Law and Domestic Violence for Florida

Q: My ex has the passcode and app to my home alarm. Can he be charged for tampering with it?

I broke up with my boyfriend recently. He had my home alarm system accessible from an app on his phone. He has my old code and recently changed my passcode to something of his liking. He tampered with it to where he armed my alarm and police showed up obviously because I didn’t have my code! Is this illegal??

A: I would suggest changing your alarm code and contacting the company who you are billed through to notify them of the breach. I would also contact the nearest police department.
