Drone with drugs in Mexico – level 1

30-01-2015 15:00

A drone carries drugs. It flies from Mexico to California, but it falls down. Police find it. They don’t know who controls it. They try to find this person.

Drones are also found outside prisons. These drones carry cigarettes and marijuana.

Mexican drug dealers try to move the drugs north. They use tunnels, drones and other small planes.

Difficult words: drone (a small plane which has no pilot; it is controlled from far away), drug dealer (person who moves and sells drugs), tunnel (an underground way).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Are you for drones or against drones?
