Georgetown Police using drones to catch suspects

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kentucky police department says it's now using drones to catch criminals.

The Georgetown Police Department now has a Drone Unit.

On Sunday, officers responded to a report of a burglary at a shopping center. They found two suspects, but couldn't find the third suspect.

Officers sent up a drone, and used infrared video to find the third suspect hiding in a roof area.

Georgetown Police started using a drone earlier this summer.
