BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton teenager is in the Palm Beach County Jail Monday afternoon following his arrest on stalking charges.

While the affidavit of probable cause continues to be processed, the charges filed against Benjamin Zerblas by PBSO use very clear language: “stalking: follow, harass, cyberstalk another,” and “public order crimes — install tracking devices or tracking applications.”

We do not know at this point whether the allegation involves an app, a device like an Apple Air Tag, or something entirely different. We also do not know the identity or relationship of the alleged victim. We will update once the arrest report is provided by the Clerk of Courts.

Zerblas, 19, attends FAU according to social media, and lives on University Drive in Boca Raton which is Florida Atlantic University on-campus housing. He is being held without bond as of 5:15 p.m. Monday. Zerblas was booked into jail at 9:14 this morning.
