NYC Deploys Prescription Pill Bottles Embedded With GPS to Catch Robbers

The NYPD are asking pharmacies to stock bait pill bottles, embedded with GPS devices, to curve pharmaceutical robberies, for powerful painkillers.  From an article in the New York Times:

“The decoy pill bottles appear to be sealed bottles of oxycodone, a powerful narcotic painkiller that is widely abused, according to remarks that the police commissioner, Raymond W. Kelly, made on Tuesday. The bottles will not actually contain any painkillers. Inside each bottle, however, will be a GPS device that will allow detectives to track thieves in the period immediately after a robbery or burglary.”

The “bait bottles” are provided to pharmacies, by the manufacture of OxyContin, Purdue Pharma L.P.  These bait bottles are easily defeated, if a thief places the bottles in a RF shield bag.

4 FREAKING HOURS??????dude..you know obviously shit heppans, but if its not ready just dont talk about it. Tu sais c'est quoi l'offre et la demande? ce que tu fait depuis 2 ans n'a que fait gonfler la demande enormement et du meme coup les attentes envers ce jeu. Tout le monde le sais que ce n'est qu'un petit Flash Game qui leur procurera simplement qu'une ou deux petites heures de plaisr mais l'attente a ete tellement longue que les gens vont etre desapointer a cause qu'ils seront jamais satisfait. On parle ici que d'un petit flash game pas le next Call of duty MW3. Je sais que ce n'est pas de mauvaise volonter j'espere pour toi que tu as tirer des lecons pour la prochaine fois. En fait tu devrais profiter de ce momentum pour annoncer le AoW 3 peut-etre en 3D ???
