In March 2021, William Cabrera pleaded guilty of distributing heroin and oxycodone in 2019. His sentencing is scheduled for July 23, 2021. He was originally arrested in the summer of 2019 while selling heroin, just before law enforcement uncovered $16,000 in cash, various illicit drugs, and a firearm were in his Lawrence, Massachusetts residence. As part of a September 2019 coordinated law enforcement plan to minimize the distribution of opioids, 40 individuals were charged with federal drug offences, and about 12 more were charged with state offences.
As evidence unfolds, law enforcement is likely to learn more information about William Cabrera’s case and other similar cases. Questions remain. Who else is involved in the distribution of opioids in Lawrence? Might William Cabrera have information about some of these individuals? How long has Cabrera been involved in the distribution of illicit drugs? A new technology called EyeDetect® is already proving useful in many sheriff’s departments in the US and with law enforcement abroad. It may just prove useful in cases like Cabrera’s in the near future. Using a scanner that takes measurements of the iris while a person answers a series of yes or no questions, EyeDetect can detect lies with up to 90% accuracy, and can often detect involvement in illegal activities.
