I wonder if this technology could be used to find the lost $1 billion surplus?

They knew there was be a burglary?
Did they leave the doors open? Something about this scanty article doesn't ring true.

The other westtown Rx robberies were done at closing-time by ambushing employees. This one happens at 11:20p.m.? There is no one there at that time. Did they just leave the bottle in the parking-lot? Or was there another hold-up. Either way, I'd be interested in more details, but Heck I am glad they got the scumbag. I do think that WestTown could bennefit greatly from more lighting in their back lot and door as well as security cameras. I am glad no one got hurt too. Only an idiot junkie from terryville would continually hit a pharmacy over and over again not thinking that they would wise-up and do something about it.

You can remove them through your nose with a pickle-fork. I learned that by watching Total Recall.

Now this is a good story with a great ending. One race won, now let's see if the prosecutor and judge can make it a trifecta.

They should put tracking devices in bait money at banks, so that when there's a robbery they can activate it.

Great Job by MPD in catching the this burglary using state of the art techo. That's what good police work is all about. Too bad the public has to get wind of the vico-Lo-jack bait pill. Now the theives will either begin to look for them or demand no Lo-jack pills during a robbery. Too bad the dirt bag didn't swallow the bait pill. That would have been a surpise.

Wouldn't it be more effective to just fill the pills with radioactive waste? We gotta get rid of it somehow.
