Officials in Derbyshire, England, released a video on August 5 showing how police used a drone to follow a suspect who jumped from an upstairs window and ran away from arresting officers in the town of Matlock on December 4, 2019.
The Derbyshire Constabulary Drone Unit said Thomas Stones, age 25, “managed to evade officers, a police dog but not our drone," as they recorded Stones’s attempted escape across a series of gardens in a residential neighborhood.
The Derbyshire Constabulary said they were executing an arrest warrant for drug offenses, which Stones later pleaded guilty to in court.
He was sentenced to 28 months imprisonment for possession with intent to supply cocaine and heroin.
The police said, “You can try to run, and you can try to hide, but not from our #EyeInTheSky.” Credit: Derbyshire Constabulary Drone Unit via Storyful
