GARLAND – If you’re into getting down and dirty on a crime scene – you know, all that CSI stuff – it looks like Garland is the place to be. The Department of Public Safety opened up the Garland Crime Lab on Thursday in celebration of National Forensics Week.

So what was the scene like at the lab? Three words – Equipment, equipment, equipment. Tools for everything from drug analysis, to DNA testing, to trace evidence.

With all this high-tech stuff, it’s amazing anyone gets away with crime. Maybe this should be a reminder to all you wackos out there – what’s done in the dark, comes out in the light.
