The authorities will be using that printer to match printouts in the forms of letters and flyers to the crime syndicate and thus to individuals who had access to it. Extortion and blackmail letters to victims will be matched to the printer.

Also, some printers have short-term cap-backed or battery-backed RAM that crooks use to store sensitive information. It's doubtful that's what they were after otherwise they would have left it in place and extracted its RAM on site.

Snow White Part II, hopefully. Everybody get your intention beams in. Hopefully the cultists in Belgium never expected these raids and so didn't take measures to hide the fraud and racketeering.

That's interesting. That's something our Treasury boys are probably fully aware of.
