Certain drug traffickers begin to use giant drones to pass drugs across the border


Many are the films and series that lately, through the different platforms, show us the different ways discovered until today in which drug traffickers usually transfer their merchandise to countries like the United States circumventing all security that these countries usually have on their borders to ensure that this does not happen.

Unfortunately, this not only occurs in countries like Mexico and the United States, but practically the whole planet suffers from these incursions. In order to carry out this work, historically all kinds of technologies are used, such as the use of light aircraft, vehicles of all kinds and even the so-called 'mules', people who are paid a pittance for bringing drugs into a country within their own body.

Large and powerful drones such as the DJI Matrice 600 can be excellent for moving goods airlift across a border.

Now it seems that the drug traffickers have taken notice of new technologies and, as confirmed by a spokesman for the United States and Mexico Border Police, they have now begun to use oversized drones in order to continue passing drugs to all of North America, a country that, by the way, is the main consumer of narcotics in the world.

A very clear example of this we have in the arrest of Jorge edwin rivera, a person who at the time decided to acquire nothing less than a DJI Matrice 600, a drone much larger than you can imagine and with enough power to carry 15 kilograms of weight at a maximum height of 2.500 meters. We are talking about a professional drone that today has a price of around $ 5.000.

Thanks to the use of this very special drone, Mr. Jorge Edwin Rivera, had specialized in passing drugs over the border. At the time of his arrest, Jorge Edwin Rivera was piloting his drone 1,83 kilometers from the wall that separates Mexico and the United States, something that could be normal if the DJI Matrice 600 was not there. transporting almost 6 kilograms of methamphetamine.
