EFF Sues San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department to Obtain Records About Use of Privacy Invasive Cell-Site Simulators
Looks like the criminals in the case are those that are supposed to enforce the laws...
Cell-site simulators, also known as Stingrays, are highly invasive surveillance tools that can scoop up the location of all cell phones in a targeted area, the vast majority of which belong to people not suspected of committing any crime. Using cell-site simulators to locate a person’s phone and track the phone’s movements generally requires police to obtain a warrant under CalECPA.

Advocacy group sues San Bernardino sheriff over refusal to release surveillance records
Look at the chart for this article. San Bernardino has by far the highest rate of tech searches. Tulare is pretty high on the list too. Kern is third from the bottom. Inyo and Mono aren't even on the list. Interesting differences between adjacent counties.
San Bernardino’s law enforcement agencies’ search of digital property is accelerating. The most recent data indicate that as of August 2018 the department reported 470 searches to the California Department of Justice, more than twice as many searches as they reported for all of 2017 and more than half of the 905 total reported by all agencies so far this year.
