Jasper, When I wrote earlier the drug testing was in the back of my mind. Although I have never been anywhere or had a job that required it, I have heard and read how the switches were common.
Also, if the person had been around before giving blood (a prior arrest) for blood typing he might have known what they used for viles. Or one of the earlier suspects snagged an empty one and walked out with it.
As you say, the how doesn't matter. But as is common, the first time a procedure is in place, it still has snags that the people in charge have not thought about.
Cops aren't supposed to be able to waltz in and out of the evidence room or the crime lab either--but they do.
Since the guy doing this for the first time to solve a case was REALLY interested in doing it right and solving the crime, it was most likely some thing that they just failed to account for and they got had. I doubt it was the case of someone looking the other way.
