Trial is on
McCormick's trial has started (BBC, The Grauniad). Apparently, he based his "invention" on an American novelty item - dowsing rods for golf balls called Golfinders. He allegedly even used the Golfinder mould to make the ADE-100, a predecessor to the ADE-651.--ZooGuard (talk) 19:04, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Something similar has happened in Mexico with an anti-drug GT200 "molecular detector": http://archivo.eluniversal.com.mx/nacion-mexico/2013/impreso/al-creador-del-gt-200-siete-anios-de-prision-208488.html--184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:32, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
