With all the types of crime stories going around, here’s one which most people have probably not come across before – or even knew that such a crime tool existed. Tyler Endicott, a 20-year-old man from the 100 block of West Lake Street in Chicago’s loop, has now become infamous for having used the “Whizzinator.” If one concentrates on the first five letters of the gadget’s name – the whizz part of ‘Whizzinator’ – it should be no surprise that the instrument, for lack of a better term, is used by persons who attempt to cheat on a urine drug test. Endicott, according to the Chicago Tribune on Saturday, tried to use the device while undergoing a drug test during his probation period.
Endicott was on probation in nearby-Indiana for unlawful possession of a controlled substance, according to prosecutors involved with the man’s case. On Friday, he reportedly took a urine test which was conducted at the Cook County Adult Probation Office. While offering his urine sample, Endicott is said to have utilized the ‘Whizzinator.’ The ‘Whizzinator’ is described as a white pouch attached to a rubber penis – of sorts. The alleged drug-use offender has now been charged with defrauding an attempted-drug and alcohol screening. Due to that action, he was ordered held on $20,000 bail. The police report involved with the incident asserts that Endicott kept looking over his shoulder while urinating for the drug and alcohol screening’s test procedure. That drew the attention of a probation officer who became suspicious of him.
According to the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District of Columbia (CSOSA), the ‘Whizzinator’ contraption is being used in place of other devices used to try to beat the system’s drug testing procedures. It is replacing Visine bottles and other small instruments that have been used to store urine and other liquids. The report says that there has been a rash of attempts of males, obviously, trying to submit bogus urine samples via the prosthetic penis known as the ‘Whizzinator.’ The report says that people are paying $149.95 plus shipping and handling fees of $12.95 via Internet sales for the instrument. The ad for the ‘Whizzinator’ claims that it is undetectable and fool proof – but apparently not if it is used suspiciously while looking over one’s shoulder in Cook County with a vigilant parole officer doing his job extremely well. No word as to whether Endicott will attempt to get a refund for his purchase.
