A Texas Sheriff’s Department Ties a Single Suspect to Multiple Pharmacy Robberies Using Digital Intelligence From Devices and the Cloud

The robbery of narcotics from a local pharmacy seemed ordinary at first: A mask-wearing man approached the pharmacy counter of a CVS store and handed a clerk a note saying he had a gun, and demanded various narcotic medications. Using Cellebrite Digital Intelligence solutions, investigators were able to create maps and timelines matching the suspect’s locations and web searches to the times and places of the robberies.

Key Challenges:

  • Reduce the timelines for the resolution of cases.
  • Find new avenues for investigation when traditional sources of evidence don’t yield enough leads.
  • Connect a suspect to a string of robberies of pharmacies in the region—even though the suspect was adamant that he was not the robber.
