A judge Friday unsealed a trove of court documents that could shed light on a secret cellphone tracking program used by police nationwide.

The judge in Charlotte, N.C., acted after a petition from the Charlotte Observer to make the documents public.

Included are 529 requests from local Charlotte-Mecklenburg police asking judges to approve the use of a technology known as StingRay, which allows cellphone surveillance.
