Police plan to use spy drones in the hunt for a Rambo-style ex-soldier and policeman who has murdered three people and vowed to kill again.
They believe burly, heavily-armed Christopher Dorner is holed-up in the wilderness of Californias snow-capped San Bernardino mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles.
The burnt-out shell of his pick-up truck was discovered in the nearby resort of Big Bear, where residents and tourists have been warned to stay indoors as the search continues.
Yesterday, as a task force of 125 officers, some riding Snowcats in the rugged terrain, continued their search, it was revealed that Dorner has become the first human target for remotely-controlled airborne drones on US soil.
A senior police source said: The thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him. On the ground, its like looking for a needle in a haystack.

I hope they don’t start firing Hellfires at innocent people
In b4 the first “He’s dead, Jim”.
if they follow protocol, they will blow up several newspaper deliverypeople first.
People better keep their dogs inside.
That guy is going to have a big flir image. Maybe he has a cave. Or a space blanket hidey hole.
The burnt-out truck was a diversion.
He is more than halfway across the nation, possibly crossing the Mississippi River yesterday.
I read that Dorner’s truck had a broken axle. If so, I don’t think that was part of his master plan.
“Ex-soldier” my @$$. He was in the Navy and then the LAPD.
That’s a LIE —the very first drone targets were North Dakota RANCHERS.
Also the EPA was illegally searching private lands for YEARS.
The first targets were PROPERTY and LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS.
He’s being warm, dry, and well-fed, sheltered by the Nation of Islam, pay-back for what BrennanTheMuzzie did to Khadaffi.
He’s in LA in some mosque, and later he’ll strike again.
Did they convert him, yet? My guess would be yes.
When was the last time anyone saw him driving it? Do you happen to know?
LOL, I was wondering when someone was going to point that out.
The fact that they’re now offering a million dollars tells me that they think someone is helping him.
Two days later, we have our first target.
Found a "hidden" key and let himself in.
I haven’t kept up with this story, but I heard they found weapons in his torched pickup. Why would he do that?
Don't know - he could'a given it to a homeless person days ago, but the reports claim that there was camping gear and some firearms still in the truck.
That had never crossed my mind but it certainly is something which should be considered and if appropriate, investigated.
And dogs. Don’t forget the dogs.
