Submission + - Predator Drone Helps Nab Cattle Rustlers (ktla.com) 1

riverat1 writes: KTLA reports police in North Dakota arrested 3 men accused of cattle rustling with the help of a Predator B drone from nearby Grand Forks AFB. The sheriff of Nelson Country was chased off by 3 armed men when he went to serve a warrant so he came back the next morning with reinforcements including the drone which, while circling 2 miles overhead, was able to determine the whereabouts of the men on their 3,000 acre spread and the fact that they were unarmed. A SWAT team quickly moved in and apprehended the men. Local police say they have used the Predator drones for at least 2 dozen surveillance flights since June. The FBI and DEA have used the drones for domestic investigations as well.

Big Brother is watching.
