Heard stories about pigs using electronic beacons in controlled deliveries, then busting your door down because you are the scum of the earth obviously when ya open the package. Pigs meant only to those wasting tax payer dollars on victimless crimes to get an easy promotion. God forbid you do actual police work.

So apparently this stuff is being marketed to LE. Only has a battery life of two hours. What's to prevent someone who isn't me from waiting seeing it and chucking the stuff into my jerk of a neighbor's yard?

Any of yous know of other devices being used?

It was in Rick Collins legal muscle explaining controlled deliveries. Read it happens occasionally. Sometimes LE likes you to open up the present they left for ya.

From Rick Collin's book Legal Muscle:
Given the headaches presented by savvy suspects, law enforcers are taking a new approach: wiring the package to signal when it’s opened. When someone opens a package, that’s good evidence that he’s the one who knowingly intended to possess it, right? It might even be stronger evidence than signing for it. The application for the search warrant will request authorization to execute the raid once the signal goes off. Several jurisdictions have begun using electronic signaling devices, typically AT-4’s, to confirm that a target has opened his package. No part of the device is visible unless the package is opened. It makes no audible sound but transmits an alert signal to a remote receiver manned by the agents. These devices are perfect in cases where a signature request might spook the target. An AT-4 can make the difference between a botched operation and a valid arrest and raid. Be aware that it’s likely the wave of the future. [For a complete discussion of controlled deliveries, check out Legal Muscle].

Fascinating read, thanks for posting this up! I have heard nothing of this, but I could see how this may be an issue in the future. I still maintain that it is a waste of LE Budget, but I am biased ;)

It beats going after drug dealers that shoot back and doing actual police work. I mean one vial is a hundred units of whatever BS they decided. With two vials and 100 pills you're a drug kingpin. Street value of 1000000000000000000 bucks.

Agree with this 100%. AAS users make for easy targets and are (typically) NOT gun-toting gangster types. Far easier to bust than the average G' who is likely packing, has a record and won't willingly go back to prison for his 3rd strike.

LE priorities are way off the mark in the USA IMO. Seems their intent is no longer to diminish violent crime and preserve public safety but to simply prolong their own existence through financial and propaganda means by fleecing the public at large (traffic tickets) and via non-threatening 'busts' which the media can then blow-up into the drug bust of the century.

I cannot believe that law enforcement is spending time and money on this stupid shit. They waste all these resources trying to get steroids off the market, and while their backs are turned, 50 Cent is bringing crack in by the '64 Impala load. I think it is time that we demand intelligence from the organizations that are designed to protect us from robbers,rapists, and murderers. I don't know about you guys, but I don't want to be protected from a couple vials of tren and a Dbol tab or two. I think this is a classic case of,"Well, since we can't do anything about mind-altering, addictive drugs, let's focus on stupid shit we CAN do something about." Don't get me started.

They're not going to waste their time on small packs, now what they have used these for are for "drops" to see exactly where the "drugs' change hands. And they will do this numerous times to somewhat figure a route.

Wanted to bump this cause it took forever to find this story


Man Arrested for Importing Steroids

Authorities arrested an Augusta man Tuesday after he signed for a package from the post office containing illegal steroids from Venezuela, according to a Richmond County Sheriff's Office report. Police charged John Dough, 25, of the 200 block of Charlestowne Way, with possession of testosterone, methyltestosterone and Stanazol. They also charged him with marijuana possession, obstruction of a law officer and interference with government property, the report states.

Postal inspector Ron Williams delivered a parcel containing the steroids, addressed to another man at Charlestowne Way, about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. The package had been seized by the U.S. Customs Service in Miami, said Allan Rollins, narcotics investigator with the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

Mr. Dough told Mr. Williams that the package was for him and signed the other man's name. When he tried to open it, an alarm installed inside alerted sheriff's investigators and a U.S. Customs agent who entered the residence on a search warrant, the report states.

When officers entered the house, Mr. Dough was on the back porch throwing items into the woods. During the arrest, Mr. Dough tried to pick up investigator Mathue Phares and slam him to the ground, according to the report.

During a subsequent search, officers found two bottles of Stanazol, about 10 vials of testosterone and 50 tablets of methyltestosterone in the woods behind the residence and about 2 grams of marijuana inside a kitchen drawer, the report states.

Mr. Rollins said the amount of steroids was ``considerable'' but that since Mr. Ham is a bodybuilder it may have been for his personal use only.

That is wrong on so many levels. A multi-agency coordinated raid using high tech devices, targeted against an individual receiving a small amount of a controlled substance, that they admit may be for personal use. Purely speculation but either this guy pissed off local LE some how, or The agencies had purchased the equipment and had to use it to justify a line item in their budget for next year. Either way it is a corrupt use of power and trust.
