Drone carrying guns from US gets stuck in tree in Canada
The official Twitter account of Canada’s Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) asked its 50K+ followers an all-important question this week: “How are illegal guns reaching the hands of criminals in Canada?” But the department already knew part of the answer, thanks to a drone that had seemingly crossed the border from the United States carrying a shopping bag full of Glock semiautomatic pistols.
Officers with the OPP were informed about the drone on April 29 by local residents of Port Lambton, a small village located 60 miles from Detroit. The multi-rotor craft had apparently crashed and gotten stuck into a tree.
As the police used a bucket truck supplied by the township’s fire department to recover the drone, they saw a grocery-style plastic shopping bag was attached to it using metal carabiners and electrical tape. Packed inside were 11 handguns with their serial numbers sanded off.
