Submission + - Texas Sheriffs crash $300k drone they're not supposed to be flying (montgomerycountypolicereporter.com)

SpaceGhost writes: The Montgomery County (Texas) Police Reporter reveals that Friday morning a $300K drone was lost by the Sheriffs department in Lake Conroe (just north of Houston.) Divers were searching for the drone, which at 29 pounds is 4 pounds over a recent FAA limit, so shouldn't have been flying. The article goes on to discuss the recently passed Texas Legislature House Bill 912 which restricts the use of drones to observe private property, likely influenced by the January 2012 discovery of illegal pig blood runoff and subsequent indictment.
