Fla. police use tech to track criminals faster

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — When a shoplifting suspect beat Orange County Deputy Sheriff Gayle Cadiz unconscious outside an east Orlando Office Depot on Feb. 2, investigators knew only his race, his gender and that he was a passenger in a late-model, white Mitsubishi Galant.

Detectives were forced to begin canvassing more than 250 Galant owners in Central Florida during the next six days until they got a tip eventually leading to career criminal Malik G. Stephenson.

In the future, someone such as Stephenson may go immediately to the top of the suspect list.
