Man Used MySpace Account to Stalk Woman

Ventura County authorities report that a 39-year old Michigan man has been arrested on suspicion of stalking a Thousand Oaks woman he met online.

George Costales had reportedly been sending the woman unwanted emails over the past year. Authorities reported that the woman had blocked Costales from her MySpace account "at least five different times."

Costales, who is being held on $500,000 bail, reportedly last week announced he was selling his business and relocating to California to be with her, "because he loved her." When he arrived at the woman's front door her boyfriend recognized him from "photos he had posted online."

Investigators then reportedly used the Internet to coax Costales back to the woman's house, where he was arrested on suspicion of felony stalking.
