During the last 12 months in London, more than 3,000 phone thefts were noted, most of which were linked to drive-by crooks on two wheels. The Evening Standard reports lately that the London police are overwhelmed with the thieves on bikes, specifically in Camden and Islington. Thus, the police are considering to use drones in fighting the crime. Firstly, this solution is a safer alternative to officers pursuing so-called moped gangs across the capital. Moreover, chasing the suspect with a drone is safer for the overall public, who could get hurt in standard police action. Finally, the use of drones is much cheaper than a helicopter.
