He couldn't do anything about it, being under house arrest, so he had to
stop him from inside his own house.
Possibly Stephen King? From the nineties/early 2000s, I believe. I never
even read it, I just heard about it. It might have even been a
movie...sorry if this is the case.

"Disturbia", the 2007 Shia LaBeouf movie matches your description
"...For the assault, he is sentenced by a sympathetic judge to three months
under house arrest with an ankle monitor and a proximity sensor. Detective
Parker (Viola Davis) explains the do's and don'ts of the system to Kale &
Julie. The officer (Jose Pablo Cantillo) joyfully monitoring him follows
suit by informing him that he is his teacher's cousin. Initially, he
satiates his boredom by playing video games but, shortly thereafter, Julie
logs out his subscriptions to the iTunes Music Store and Xbox Live and cuts
the power cord of his television to get him to learn a lesson.
Kale's boredom leads him to watch the neighborhood, including the two
neighbor boys who play pranks on him, his next-door neighbor Robert Turner
(David Morse), and Ashley Carlson (Sarah Roemer), the new girl in town. One
night, Kale becomes suspicious of Robert Turner, who returns home in a 1967
Ford Mustang with a dented fender that matches the description given on a
news report of an errant serial killer..."

Yes, this was it! I remember finding it the first time when I was
looking up the Rihanna song by the same name. Thank you!
