Concealment alert: Search handhelds

Submitted by:
Officer Fred Williams, Florida Dept. of Juvenile Justice

A probationer recently related that he could conceal four packets of marijuana in the battery compartment of his handheld electronic gaming system, and that this technique had successfully evaded law enforcement detection during previous contacts.
