Rob Ford‘s crack scandal may be a book now, but the material for a Crazy Town sequel is already in the works. The Toronto Star reports that the police are still seeking search warrants as part of their ongoing probe of the mayor. The cops are after cellphone records, but you know what they’re not after? GPS records for the OnStar device in Ford’s personal Escalade. That’s because, according to the Star‘s sources, investigators are already hard at work excavating that particular goldmine of locational data. We have no way of knowing what’s being done, but it’s easy to imagine the GPS information being used to put together a map of the mayor’s movements over many months.

Ford says we should read nothing into this. “I will just give [police] my cellphone,” he told the Sun. “They can take it.” The Star says its lawyers are already working to get the warrant documents unsealed, so there’s a very good possibility the public will know more in a few months.
