DEA’s Servers Low on Disk Space, Drops Charges to Make Room

It must be Armando Angulo’s lucky day. Federal charges on illegal online prescriptions were recently dropped, not due to lack of evidence, but for having too much. The DEA had 400k pages occupying two terabytes of digitally stored evidence. Federal Prosecutors decided to drop the charges rather than fight for extra digital storage space. We should all be so lucky in the future. big grin

The evidence against Angulo alone reportedly was taking up 5 percent of the DEA's entire worldwide global storage network.
