Using CSECO Fiberscope Leads to Seizure of 7 LBs of Crystal Meth

Law enforcement officers around the country, particularly those working with contraband detection and drug interdiction, need technology they can trust. Many agencies turn to contraband detection equipment manufactured by Campbell/Harris Security Company (CSECO). CSECO receives testimonials from officers that explain how important CSECO contraband detectors are to locating and seizing illegal contraband.

For instance, during a traffic stop along I-20 October, 2013, a Criminal Interdiction Officer, a member of a Mississippi task force, stopped a 2003 Toyota Tundra. The occupant of the truck acted in such a way that the officer felt the driver might be traveling with contraband in their vehicle so he requested permission to search the truck.

After the driver gave permission to search the vehicle, the officer started his inspection where he noticed an area under the rear seat of the truck that stood out. Removing the seat, the officer was able to locate a sophisticated hidden compartment under the seat.

The officer chose the CSECO FV Series Fiberscope because he knew he would be able to see inside the compartment to confirm whether contraband was hidden there without having to take the vehicle apart further. The FV Series Fiberscope is made up of 16,000 individual fiber optic strands with a high-intensity light. This allowed the officer to see plastic bags hidden in the compartment. The officer suspected the bags held Crystal Meth or some other illegal substance.

Accessing the compartment by removing under carriage components, the officer removed six hidden packages that weighed in around 7 pounds total. The officer stated that if he did not have the FV Series Fiberscope it is unlikely he would have been able to locate or confiscate the contraband.

Along with the FV Series Fiberscope, CSECO also manufactures the Buster K910B contraband detector and density meter and CT – 30 Contraband Team Detection Kit which includes the Buster, Fiberscope and other contraband detection equipment. This equipment is able to locate hidden drugs, weapons, currency as well as being able to detect ‘dirty bombs’ and explosives.

To learn more about the FV Series Fiberscope or any of the other contraband detectors manufactured and sold to federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, send an email to info@cseco.com or call 510-864-8010. CSECO has training available for all of their contraband detection equipment.
