A Southern California drone retailer has been robbed half-a-million dollars worth of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and equipment in a recent robbery.

The LA Times reports that on the early morning of Nov. 18, a few suspects, who have not yet been identified or caught, allegedly broke in to PMG Multi-Rotors in Corona by heaving rocks through the window. They then proceeded to fill a wheelbarrow with UAS totaling around $500,000 and flee with the merchandise.

The multi-rotor UAS were all equipped with cameras and control systems. An octocopter was later located strewn in a nearby gutter, with the camera nowhere to be found.
