  • Mexican Drone Overloaded With Meth Crashes At Border

    Nothing like a little high tech to start off the day. I wonder how much of that meth was actually turned in to evidence by the Mexican authorities. I suspect the average Mexican LEO could retire on the proceeds from a single bag.





    MEXICO CITY – Police in a Mexican border city said Wednesday that a drone overloaded with illicit methamphetamine crashed into a supermarket parking lot.
    Tijuana police spokesman Jorge Morrua said authorities were alerted after the drone fell Tuesday night near the San Ysidro crossing at Mexico's border with California.
    Six packets of the drug, weighing more than six pounds, were taped to the six-propeller remote-controlled aircraft. Morrua said authorities are investigating where the flight originated and who was controlling it. He said it was not the first time they had seen drones used for smuggling drugs across the border.
    Other innovative efforts have included catapults, ultralight aircraft and tunnels.

    Cool. Can I set up a AAA battery to bring them down along the border? Think that it'll be a Mossberg 12 gauge turkey gun with 3.5 inch shotshells in 00 buck.

      I think it would be a lot more fun to arm a model airplane/helo and hunt the drug smuggling drones down. Of course I would probably get in very serious legal troubles so I'll give it a pass.

        Over kill with 00. Just some good skeet rounds. Skeet ranges for our Olympic teams, who could complain, except the teams? Then the drones are nothing more than RC, low tech, should be easy enough to jam.

            Actually, just jam the signal. It will either crash or automatically return to the place it was launched.

            With six pounds of drugs, this one, with its six motors running at full power, probably was unable to maintain stability and flipped over to crash.

                    With the Obama administration at the helm...I wouldn't be surprised. Heck, who would have thought we'd ship guns to Mexican gangs? Yet...we did.
