A Miami Lie Detector test was recently used in a drug dealing scandal. Our client Dean came to use when he suspected one of his delivery drivers guilty of dealing drugs. Here is Dean’s story and how we found him the truth he deserved to know.

The beginning

Dean set up his Miami delivering company during lockdown. He had a previous history of working in logistics. When the pandemic hit, Dean ceased his chance to establish his own company whilst on furlough. He started off by delivering for local businesses who had increased online orders due to the pandemic. Within months of launching Dean realised he needed someone part time to help him with his busy delivery rounds. He put an advert on Facebook and in his local newspaper and had lots of replies. He interviewed a few candidates but finally he employed a local guy called James.

Suspicions start

James was slightly younger than Dean but had a likeable personality and seemed focused and motivated. Dean was delighted to have found James and James’s first month went off to a great start. However, two months down the line Dean started to receive worrying client calls. He had four local businesses all reporting James for being late, not turning up for collections, delivering damaged parcels or for not recorded his deliveries properly to customers.


Dean called James into the office to talk through the complaints he had received and give James a chance explain what had been going on from his viewpoint. However, Dean was surprised when James flew off the handle. He showed aggression and argued and shouted back at Dean. Dean told him to take the rest of the week off, suspecting something might be going on in his personal life.

Drug allegations

Whilst James was off, Dean received a phone call from his best friend Gareth. Gareth told him how he had spotted James’s car on his estate a few times throughout two days. Gareth knew that the house in question had a reputation for being addicted to cocaine. He rang Dean concerned that James might be mixed up in dealing or taking drugs. Dean told Gareth about giving James the week off because of his erratic behaviour, so now he was concerned it was because of doing drugs. He asked Gareth what he would do in his shoes, and Gareth told him about Lie Detector Test. He said he had booked a polygraph Lie Detector Test when he suspected his employee guilty of stealing from him.

Time for a test

Later that day Dean looked at the Lie Detector Test website and read about our polygraph tests. He preferred the idea of a polygraph Lie Detector test because it gave a 98% accurate result. He understood the polygraph test took longer than a stand-alone Lie Detector test but he felt more reassured putting James through a longer test that offered him the option to ask more questions about potentially dealing or taking drugs.

The results

Dean booked the polygraph test to be taken by James and our Miami office for the following week. He told James when he turned back up to work after his week off. James was surprised but he was happy to take the test and clear himself of any suspicion. He took his test a few days later and his results showed he was lying. James asked to speak to Dean and he confessed that he had been dealing drugs alongside his deliveries. He explained that he became friends with the couple after delivering to them. He then got into taking cocaine when he went over for drinks one evening. Because he owed the couple living at the house a lot of drugs money, he agreed to deliver drugs alongside his parcel drops offs for Dean.

The future

Dean immediately dismissed James from his company, saying he wouldn’t go to the police if he cut all ties and communications off from working for him. However, Dean did take James to a rehab clinic and made sure that James got the professional help he needed for his drug addiction. Dean keeps in touch with James now to make sure he is ok, but is glad he is no longer associated or working for his company. He now has a new assistant Sarah who is settling into the company well and he thanks Lie Detector Test for their professionalism and help in his case.
