This is some next-level “CSI” stuff right here.
Cops in Bridgend, Wales recently arrested a guy for drugs, and when they searched his phone, they found a picture in WhatsApp of his dealer’s HAND holding a bunch of ecstasy tablets . . . basically showing off what he had to sell.
And that was enough to help the cops bust the dealer. Because a little bit of his fingers were visible in the photo, and they were able to digitally grab his FINGERPRINTS.
His prints weren’t in the national database, but after their investigation, they had a potential suspect named Elliott Morris . . . and when they fingerprinted him, he matched what they’d pulled off of the photo on WhatsApp.
He was sentenced to eight-and-a-half years in prison on drug charges.
