Wisconsin Police Use Borrowed Drone to Find and Arrest a Suspect

According to a recent CNET article, in Wisconsin, the cops have used a drone to successfully locate and subsequently arrest a car thief. The Wisconsin police department does not own their own drones, in this case, the local fire department’s drone was borrowed. The police deployed the drone as the suspect was attempting to hide in a pond, in some tall cattails.

“The drone was borrowed from our local fire department after they offered to assist us with this incident. This was the first time we have used a drone for a criminal investigation.”
