Drug Dealers Lose in Pager Debacle - 1998-05-21
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Drug dealers may have been among the biggest losers when a satellite glitch silenced pagers across the country this week.
"That's about the only positive thing I can think of so far that's come out of this," police Lt. Anthony Alba said. "Hopefully this will make their efforts more difficult and cause more of them to get caught."
For the past decade or so, pushers have been using pagers to connect with customers.
