Stolen Painkillers to Be Tracked With Decoy GPS Bottles

By

Not only is the Bloomberg administration limiting when and where people can get powerful painkillers, but the NYPD plans to follow the oft-stolen drugs via fake bottles fitted with GPS trackers. "We would anticipate the burglar and robber will take numerous bottles, and among them will be the bait bottle," NYPD spokesman Paul Browne explained. The technology will be provided by Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin, which really needs people to stop robbing and killing people for its drugs.
