It's the fastest growing crime in the world. Local departments are doing what they can to pull the plug on computer crime with the Mid-Michigan Area Cyber Crimes Task Force.
ABC12's Courtney Chamberlin had more on how slowly, major changes are making their way into Bay City's FBI office. More desks will be set up, they'll have more supplies, and there will be two computers at each station.
An officer from Michigan State Police, one from the Saginaw County Sheriff's Department, one from the United States Secret Service and one from the FBI will all work out of one office to solve cyber crimes.
Special equipment will be used to look at things like suspects' computers. The unit will focus on crimes in 21 counties, Saginaw and northward, seeking anything from child pornography to fraud.
