A man has been sentenced after a thermal police drone spotted a heat source coming from the property he occupied.
In a post on Twitter, the Derbyshire Police drone team described how it discovered the heat source last November at an address in South Normanton.
This led to a warrant being issued and 148 cannabis plants being found, with a value of between £27,000 and £110,000.
Now, occupant Fatmir Milushi, has been sentenced to 18 months.
The unit described it as a #dronesforgood story.
