If law enforcement wanted to search my property from the air using a drone with a camera, could they do so without a warrant? Have there been any cases in the US regarding the constitutionality of using drones by law enforcement in such a manner?
What about google maps satellite imagery of my property?
These questions were prompted by the recent use of drones by law enforcement in Denver to search a murder suspect’s employer’s property and found evidence linking the suspect to the crime. In this case I believe the employer gave consent to the search.
