Submission + - Remote controlled drone used to kidnap in California (nypost.com)

turkeydance writes: SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A California woman who was drugged along with her boyfriend and then dragged from their home described the “hell that we have survived” in emotional testimony Thursday before her abductor was sentenced to 40 years in prison in a crime so elaborate and bizarre that police initially dismissed it as a hoax.
Muller used a remote-controlled drone to spy on Huskins and Quinn before he broke into their Vallejo home with a fake gun, tied up the couple and made them drink a sleep-inducing liquid, prosecutors said. They were blindfolded while Muller played a pre-recorded message that made it seem as if there was more than one kidnapper.
