What is a dead drop? Are they dangerous or illegal?

Dead drops are usb drives hidden usually on private property and could possibly involve vandalism and illegal activities.   Dead drops can possibly contain viruses, illegal music, documents and other information that can be considered illegal or malicious.

Dead drops are used to exchange files.  Usually hidden in plain site – they can be anywhere.

So is the little tiny town of Shelbyville too small for dead drops?
