Feds Intercept BBM Messages to Bust Drug Ring in LA

BlackBerry Messenger has been touted as the most secure way mobile messaging system. However, that doesn’t seem to stop federal agents from accessing the communications.

An L.A.-based drug task force was able to intercept BBM communications in connection with an alleged cocaine and methamphetamine drug operation.

The report from the LA TImes doesn’t specify what means the drug task force used to intercept the communications. Though, you may recall a similar incident with India.

The Indian government had requested special access to BlackBerry Messenger for the ability to intercept communications for specified users. Perhaps the US government was granted similar access?

Up to nine people are now listed in the indictment. The main suspects in “Operation Family Guy” are brothers Milton Urena and Rafael Urena
