Lew Lorton (3657725) writes "Relying on a GPS device placed in a decoy pill bottle, police officers tracked an armed man suspected of robbing a pharmacy on Friday afternoon and fatally shot him during a confrontation on the Upper East Side. When the man was confronted while his car was in a traffic jam, according to police he raised a gun to shoot and an officer shot and killed him.
The pill bottles sit on the pharmacy shelf in a special base; when the bottles are lifted from the base, they begin to emit a signal.
The decoy bottles were developed by Purdue Pharma, which makes OxyContin, a brand of oxycodone,"
