NYPD looks to GPS bottles to combat pill bandits ....WOW NY becoming the ultimate Nanny...
The New York Police Department wants pharmacies in and around the city to fight prescription drug thefts by stocking pill bottles fitted with GPS tracking chips.

Police pharmacies to hide fake pill bottles fitted with GPS devices amid the legitimate supplies on their shelves.

The New York Police Department believes the so-called "bait bottles" could help investigators track stolen drugs and locate suspects.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly is expected to unveil the plan Tuesday at a La Quinta, Calif., conference on health issues hosted by former President Bill Clinton's foundation.

In prepared remarks provided in advance of his appearance, Kelly says the initiative was prompted by a spate of high-profile crimes associated with the thriving black market for prescription drugs, including the slaying of four people on Long Island during a pharmacy holdup in 2011. He also cites the case of a retired NYPD officer who, after retiring with an injury and getting hooked on painkillers, began robbing drug stores at gunpoint.

Prescription drug abuse "can serve as a gateway to criminal activities, especially among young people," the commissioner says. "When pills become too expensive, addicts are known to resort to cheaper drugs such as heroin and cocaine. They turn to crime to support their habit."

Cops giving New York City pharmacies OxyContin bottles equipped with GPS tracking devices as "bait" to track thieves

OxyContin "bait bottles" equipped with GPS tracking devices are being sent to city pharmacies to help police track the thieves who steal them, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says.

The announcement is expected to be made by Kelly Tuesday afternoon at a California conference sponsored by former President Bill Clinton.

"In the event of a robbery or theft, we'll be able to track the bottle, which may lead us to stash locations across the city,'' Kelly said, according to an advance copy of his speech.

"We're also asking industry researchers to explore the possibility of applying nanotechnology in such a way that individual 'bait' tablets could be tracked by GPS."
