Not saying this is the same thing, but a vehicle in Baton Rouge some
few years ago was found to have a similar device attached to it. Turns
out it allegedly was placed there during the manufacturing process by
the car maker to track it through the factory and wasn't retrieved
when it left the manufacturer. The claim was that the automaker placed
these tracking devices on the cars through the finish process until
they are checked off the lot.
Sorry, I can't provide a reference for this, just a faint memory of
reading about it.
