US: Couple arrested for selling drugs using drones


Riverside (US), Dec 27: A couple in Southern California, United States, used a drone to deliver illegal drugs to their customers, said authorities.

Benjamin Baldassarre and Ashley Carroll, of Riverside, were charged yesterday with possessing controlled substances for sale and child endangerment.

It's unclear if they have attorneys who can comment on the charges. Police arrested the couple last Thursday after neighbors suspected they were selling drugs.

Authorities say a drone delivered drugs to customers at a nearby parking lot. The customers would then drive by the couple's home and throw their payments on the lawn.

The child endangerment charges were filed because Baldassarre's 9-year-old daughter lived in the home, where police say they found syringes and drugs believed to include methamphetamine, LSD-laced candy and powdered fentanyl. The girl was turned over to her mother.
