The Richland County Sheriff’s Department said they had help capturing an accused murderer Tuesday from a new perspective– they used a drone to help locate him.
“We use the drone to assist with our deputies on the ground with the perimeter. We use it to scan the area. The suspect was actually in a thick area of the woods. Our SWAT team is here on the left, the suspect is actually here in the center, he’s actually seen as a white hot-spot,”
RCSD says they have used drones three times in the past week and now have four drones in the program.
