No, your issue doesn't relate to hardware at all.

If:
* you really think that someone might go to the trouble of installing hardware spying devices INSIDE your Mac;
* you have concerns that they may have had access to sensitive commercial data:
then you need to:
* go to an IT or Security professional to get your Mac checked out
* tell the people you work for.

I'm surprised the police didn't take it more seriously: they should at the very least have taken details of the phone call and what you suspect.
However, unless you do work in some environment where corporate or state espionage is likely: I'm guessing that what you suspect would be unlikely. But even so: it needs checking out.

It is very possible that this person may just be messing with you: they may have seen your computer screen whilst you weren't looking, or you may have spoken about the trip and forgotten.

So here I am, started to download Mountain Lion ( in order to do a clean install) and I saw in Launchpad another app waiting to be downloaded, BUT I did not purchase anything else. Here I took screen shot, check it out how it looks and please tell me what it could be?

Looks like a game, however, you can hover over the icon and a tool tip should appear. Or look in the Mac App Store for any currently downloading (or awaiting download) apps.

It's IMRemoteURLConnectionAgent and it's related to the iMessage app. Nothing to worry about.
