Law enforcement Case Study - Drugs - Mobile Phone Analysis
The following is an anonymised case study based on a real assignment conducted by CCL-Forensics for a Law Enforcement Agency
Following a major police operation, a man was arrested on suspicion of importing class A drugs, worth over £100K.
As part of the investigation, a mobile phone belonging to the suspect was sent to CCL Forensics, with the instruction to attempt a retrieval of deleted SMS and call logs from the phone.
The phone was due to arrive at CCL on Friday with a request for an analysis and a full report to be completed by Monday.
One of CCL-Forensics highly trained analysts was able to retrieve all the information the Office-In-Case needed and a full report was sent back on Monday.
The man was later sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.
