Authorities Uncovered Coordinated Conspiracy
Rhode Island authorities recently uncovered a coordinated conspiracy to steal various big ticket items in several states. The planned items totaled around $700,000 and several of the planned items had already been stolen. Officials say that nine people were involved in the conspiracy which, according to the District of Rhode Island Attorney’s Office, involved stealing, transporting, and selling stolen “excavators, boats, jet skis, ATVs, and trailers from businesses.” Items were stolen from businesses in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.
In March 2021, Jared J. Santiago pleaded guilty to being involved in the conspiracy, and in December 2020, Luis M. Morales pleaded guilty to being involved. The conspiracy’s leader, Jose A. Montes, and seven others are currently waiting for trial.
In cases like these with many individuals involved, it is helpful to learn truthful details from each individual who is part of the conspiracy. A new technology called EyeDetect® will no doubt prove useful in similar cases in the 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 is already being used by law enforcement in some states. EyeDetect could uncover important details about the conspiracy, and by suggesting whether accused parties are telling the truth.
