MEXICO CITY (AP) — 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. In April, authorities in South Carolina found a drone outside the fence of a prison that had been carrying cellphones, marijuana and tobacco.
You know how everyone always says "why would you ever commit a crime these days? It's impossible not to get caught." Well I guess it's time to retort with "how the fuck do you get caught doing crime these days?" For every neat toy the cops have available to them to track you down there's like ten other toys you can get at Best Buy that will keep you under the radar. I mean seriously, if this thing doesn't crash how in the fuck are you supposed to stop it from reaching it's destination? And as smart as this plan sounds to us, the Cartel must be sittin down in Mexico cracking up about how easy it is to smuggle drugs these days.
"Yo Esteban, you remember when we used to have to, like, gut cars and fill them with cocaine? Or shove a bunch of heroine up a hooker's butthole? Or build giant catapults (apparently) and pray we hit the target? Well now all we have to do is call your cousin Tito at Radio Shack and tell him to give us a discount on a drone. It's like drug dealing is legal now, homes."
And I guess I'll be the first to say it, even though we're all thinking it: had this idea come out like 5 years earlier then Heisenburg would still be alive and running shit in the ABQ. Well, assuming the cancer held off. I guess that was always a big factor.
