Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management: On Jan. 10, 11 and 12, the Colorado Department of Public Safety (CDPS) continued field investigations into reports of suspicious drone activity in northeastern Colorado. The investigations involved both air and ground-based resources deployed during the evening to search for suspicious activity and to respond to suspicious drone reports.

In response to public concern over reports of unusually large-sized drones flying patterns in groups, CDPS has been gathering and analyzing information since November 23 and has conducted field investigations since January 6. Personnel from the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM), Division of Fire Prevention and Control (DFPC) and Colorado State Patrol have participated in these operations.

On Jan. 10, field investigations increased due to the report of a drone in close proximity to a Flight for Life helicopter. After speaking to Flight for Life, the incident does not appear to be related to the northeastern drone activity. This determination was made based on the information shared directly with CDPS staff, including the incident that occurred during daylight hours, involved one drone, and the pilot cannot identify a specific location. Unfortunately, this type of drone incursion is an all-too-frequent event with medical helicopters and serves as an important reminder to drone operators to follow FAA operations guidance.

To date, CDPS has confirmed no incidents involving criminal activity, nor have investigations substantiated reports of suspicious or illegal drone activity. The Colorado Information Analysis Center (CIAC) will continue to receive and analyze suspicious drone activity reports.

Want to find out what these things are? Real simple: Post a $1,000 bounty for each one shot down, at every gun shop, farm co-op or feed store. Downed vehicles must be turned in at a specific time and place, by a date certain. Soon enough the person posting the bounty will have a visit from the folks responsible, and more visits by folks who down one or more of these things. Case closed...
