Court Rules That Police Cannot Use Warrants to Obtain Cell Phone Location of Person Who is Subject of Arrest Warrant

It seems to me this decision is wrong.  Although I might buy the idea that a person’s location is protective on the fourth Amendment, I strongly believe that if there is a warrant for the persons arrest, then a search warrant can issue for the location of the person.  After All, if there is an arrest warrant they may enter the persons residence to arrest them.  I fail to see how locating a person by their cell phone is really any different.
