Drone carrying 6 pounds of meth, falls in Tijuana

Unmanned aircraft, (Drone) falls in Zona Rio

For the last year or so, drones, unmanned aircraft, have crept into our lives.  Drones are routinely spotted on beaches, over sporting events and suburban neighborhoods. At a party or gala event, it is not unusual to glance up and see the somewhat eerie sight of a remote device, recording all the unaware people below.

Though in the midst of a legal battle at the Federal level,  many unmanned aircraft related businesses have emerged locally, as well as nationally.  In real estate, journalism, marketing and other fields, drones are being used commercially.  For recreation, those who can afford one, use it as a hobby, navigating the beaches and scenic areas of the city, captu
ring images and uploading to social media sites.


Yesterday, in Zona Rio, Tijuana, the eyes fell from the sky, carrying 6 pounds of methamphetamine, assumedly headed across the San Ysidro border.  The drone was a 'Spreading Wings S900', with 6 propellers and lithium batteries.  This drone model retails for about $1500.  It may become more common to see these type of smuggling attempts take place, as smaller traffickers seek cost efficient, reliable ways to cross product. 

At maybe 2,000 a pound, the crystal will wholesale for maybe 2800-3000 a pound once on the US side.  At 3k a pound times six, thats a roughly 6k profit, minus the 1500 or so for the drone.  It may  become an accepted way to bypass the line, with it's many hassles, variables and watchful eyes.  

Authorities believe the drone crashed because of the weight of the crystal packages, it may take trial and error, but with the cheap price of methamphetamine and relative cheap cost of drones, it will easily be done.

    1. PERSONALLY i believe that anyone selling METH or HEROIN OR ANY OTHER drug like them SHOULD face a firing squad or be hung by the neck until dead.

    2. Its just funny that they are now trying with drones, but yea anyone trying to hook their neighborhood or race on drugs and not use that money to give back to the community should die even if they give the community the money it would still kind of not feel right to let these dicks get away. You got to remember to that its the governments fault all of this is happening because most drug dealers and sicarios are poor people who need to make money fast and cant wait 20 years to save money from working at mc donalds. If the government were to stop being greedy and corrupt then their would be better jobs than selling crack to your own countrymen.

  5. Those immigrants have all the rights to come to the US the RIGHT WAY, not by doing it illegal like they wanna do it. Follow the rules n its easy dont follow the rules n they are getting shipped back. Homeland Security is there to see that everything is done the RIGHT WAY. Homeland Security must be a better job than what u have if you are crying over n about it.

  11. That's the good thing about the USA. I read an article where they are well aware of this tactic and most likely already have a detection capability. I will say for 1500.00 dollars this is most likely a piece of crap and that is why it crashed. The drones used by military personnel has stealth features and is undetectable. I am more than certain at the price they paid for this, it lacks that feature. May as well buy a bunch of remote controlled helicopters at a cheaper rate. Too funny.

  25. When i was living in Juarez back in the early 2000s, i knew a few players in the coke business back then, most of whom are probably dead by now. However i would hear of few of the strategies used by them to smuggle dope. one of them being the use of radio controlled airplanes that they purchased at a Hobby Lobby in El paso for about $500 bucks and a $250 dollar GPS tracking device. I was never ever present to see them in action but what i was told that they would operate out in deserted areas moving anywhere from 2-3 kilos of blow about twice a day per plane. It was my understanding that it was several people pushing planes across the border while other people tracking the GPS coordinates on this side of the border would drive on 4-wheeler to where the planes landed in remote areas of west Texas. The planes where later taken back to Juarez that same day by the group that collected the dope on the Texas side. So to hear the unmanned drones are now being employed does not surprise me at all, essentially this tactic has been used for 15 years now.

  26. This is just the one they discovered. No telling how many were/are successful. This might just be a case of being greedy or lazy, if not an intentional distraction.

  27. Simple Solution-
    Have American Army drones destroy the smaller drones- or - have that whole area scrambled with radio waves- they would not be able to contol them.

    The idea that would stop humans traffkers would never be approved by ACLU. It involves drones with heat sensors shooting traffikers with "knockout" tranquilisers. Knock out every single human crossing that area and have Border Patrol pick them up-there would be no chase or conflict because they would be knocked out from the tranquiliser.

    1. Wont happen. There are already drones here at the border however like the ones you would see in Iraq. I believe drones are used but usually in deserted areas where you wouldn't expect it. I'm sure this was an incident with a smaller drug dealer. Usually the bug loads are worth about 500k vs the few grand this guy lost unfortunately

  29. This is another tool in the elaborate smuggler's arsenal. The US recalibrated radar capabilities to detect one-person fliers not too long ago, they need to make another leap to detect these things, but they are very SMALL; as soon as Fox news picks this up and ratches up the paranoia about it being used with radiation or biologicals or whatever gets their viewers' hot-pocket addled brains riled up, then CBP/Homeland will respond. Maybe they need Montel Williams to take up the struggle, Tahmoresi style.
    Smugglers should stick with the onagers/catapults, those seem to be the best bang for the buck.
