A DISTRIBUTED NETWORK OF ILLICIT ACTIVITY
Involvement in the lucrative narcotics trade can come from any direction; the profit potential is high, and the lure is strong. The production, transport and sale of illegal drugs employs a vast network. This shadowy economy has many actors who work hard to conceal their identities, and who are unaware of the identity of others up and down the supply chain. Piecing together this puzzle can take weeks or months of painstaking work.

REVEALING NEW PLAYERS IN THE NARCOTICS DISTRIBUTION CHAIN
A routine traffic stop in a Midwestern state led to the discovery of 18 pounds of heroin. The driver refused to speak to police.
Despite the driver’s lack of cooperation, investigators using VoyagerAnalytics were able to quickly identify and chart the driver’s associates, providing a full picture of the distribution network with which he was affiliated. The platform even unearthed individuals who were not formally part of the network, but nonetheless facilitated the trafficking. VoyagerAnalytics’ ability to seamlessly map connections across geographic regions was particularly useful in this instance.
