Does spelling "mystery" as "mistery" make you myserable?

The goons from Interior /have/ police powers.

"Never do yourself what you can con an expert to do for you" (Miles Vorkosigan as relayed by Ellie.

Also, as with Kaat, a single pair of DNA samples is a cracker.

And you have already in the series has the collection of DNA with Stickies TWICE. The goons may know this (or ask Ra'd or Ebsa) and or suggest the Baker Street Irregulars be sent to collect.

Tsk! You don't want Rael to run around detecting?

Plus they'd either have to get warrants--when there's not even a definite crime committed, let alone evidence pointing at some specific individual. Or do it illegally, not something Rael is going to ask of youngsters she's just met.

Now Real might do it herself--the party collection was probably not ethical, but it was her house and her trash, so not illegal--but she doesn't realize there's any rush.

They have reasonable cause for investigating ID forgery and theft.

Looking back at Empire of the One, collecting samples is rife but they are sure ID forgery is going on.

Maybe the Paer newsie 216 incident, treated as a breach of privacy, triggered an update of regulations?
