SmartWater CSI Helping Track Down Criminals

Posted: Updated:

Just as fingerprinting and DNA revolutionized law enforcement, there's a new tool in town to catch the bad guys.

SmartWater CSI says their potion is made from a combination of 26 rare earth metals, and each bottle contains a signature that's 1 in a billion, therefore linking owners to their belongings and criminals to the scene.

"So the bad guy would have it in a particular pattern sprayed on his face...but it's the analysis that we do in our labs that gives a 100% accurate report on just what's made up of that solution and that says a particular number, and that particular number relates directly to you," said SmartWater CSI President Logan Pierson.

Used for 17 years in the United Kingdom, SmartWater CSI helped convict a man who was coated with the spray while breaking into a London cop car.

"They are over 1200 and 0. There has never been a loss in the UK when Smart Water has been involved in the case," said Pierson

And now, as the United States case involving the product heads to the Florida courts .

The question is, will it hold up?

It's not just being marketed to law enforcement. SmartWater CSI says their product is gaining popularity among everyday consumers, dapping the solution on valuables like iPhones, laptops, Blackberries and car stereos, and in the event of a theft, they say crooks can be caught more quickly with the help of their product, and it has a 5 year shelf life.
