Advancements in technology continue to create opportunities for breakthroughs in business. This was evident recently when two budding entrepreneurs were arrested for a business venture that fell far short of legal.
Last Thursday, officers watched a drone take off from a backyard in an Orangecrest neighborhood and drop into a nearby parking lot. The officers soon discovered the drone carried a package of narcotics that were purportedly picked up by the suspects’ customers.
This is the first time anyone has been arrested in the City of Riverside for transporting illegal drugs by drone. The suspects were charged with “suspicion” of possession of controlled substances, possession of controlled substances for the purposes of sales, and conspiracy. The two men were also charged with child endangerment.
