In recent years, trap makers have competed to see who can dream up the most elaborate opening tricks. The acknowledged masters of this art are the Dominican-born installers of the Bronx, many of whom work out of auto body shops on Jerome Avenue—a gritty strip that DEA agents call the Silicon Valley of trap making. “The Dominicans started doing voice activation about six years ago,” says Lewis, who teaches classes in trap recognition to law-enforcement agencies nationwide. “I have videotape of a Dominican trap—you have to activate cruise control, pull one window up while you pull another window down, and you speak.
