A 25-year-old Nebraska man was arrested after his court-ordered ankle monitor allegedly showed him to be at the site of a home invasion and armed robbery in Omaha around the time the incident occurred, according to a story on Omaha.com.

The man, who is on parole, allegedly pointed a shotgun at a couple in bed with their infant son, according to the report. During the investigation, a parole officer checked the man's ankle monitor, which led to his arrest.
