With the recent surge of drone usage worldwide for various tasks, it was only a matter of time before drones made their way into the hands of the world’s more rebellious, lawbreaking citizens.
One anonymous tech-savvy criminal in the West Midlands, U.K. took to the Halesowen News to explain how he was able to use drone technology to extort cannabis farm owners out of their crops or monetary payments:
“I bought my first drone for a few hundred quid and learned how to fly it over wasteland and fitted a wifi camera to it so I could look into people’s windows. However, I noticed police helicopters used thermal imaging cameras to find cannabis farms because of the heat the hydroponic lights give off so I bought a second hand heat-seeking camera online and hooked it up to my iPad.”
Once the investigative thief finds a property that contains a cannabis farm, the criminal and his buddies then raid the premises, or extort the victim in question. The criminal also expressed that he had no mercy for his peers, stating:
“They are fair game, it is not like I’m using my drone to see if people have nice televisions I am just after drugs to steal and sell, if you break the law then you enter me and my drone’s world.”
All is fair in drugs and war, right?
