Officials find $1M worth of police radios in home of former EMT
Investigators said the man got the radios by saying he needed them for his ambulance company
HOUSTON — A former CyFair volunteer EMT is in custody after police raided his home and found nearly a million dollars worth of encrypted police radios, investigators said.
KHOU 11 News is not identifying him because he has not been charged with anything yet.
The Houston Police Major Offenders Division found the police radios in the man's home. It would have enabled him to not only listen to officers, but talk to them as well. “AES encryption is for law enforcement, and in the wrong hands, it could be detrimental,” said a Motorola representative who didn’t want to be identified.
