Inside the SBI’s Computer Crimes Unit: ‘It is anywhere. It could be anybody’


No matter how many times they’ve done it, serving a warrant can never be routine for the agents of the State Bureau of Investigation. On a Tuesday evening in May, they gathered with their law enforcement partners in Lincoln County to review a plan they would be executing moments after.
