Eye in the sky

Irish Examiner - Farming - - COVER STORY -

Po­lice in Va­len­cia, Spain, say they pre­vented a big or­anges theft with drone sur­veil­lance.

They said more than 2,000kg of or­anges had been har­vested in a field at Par­dines, in the prov­ince of Girona.

Due to a truck break­down, they were tem­po­rar­ily stacked in the field.

Us­ing a drone that flies 40m over the fields, the lo­cal po­lice de­tected a sus­pi­cious van about 300m away.

It sped away, leav­ing at least two peo­ple among the or­ange trees.

They fled across the fields be­fore the po­lice ar­rived, find­ing 103 boxes of or­anges which they had tried to steal.
