Drug dealer arrested in spite of home robotic protection: police

TAIPEI--A suspected drug dealer in Taipei, whose home was tightly protected by a surveillance robot, has been arrested, city police said Saturday.

The 31-year-old man, surnamed Cheng, was found in possession of marijuana, amphetamine and other illegal drugs, two guns, and several bullets, the police said.

At Cheng's home, there was also a Rovio robot that can help its owner evade pursuit and avoid capture, according to police.

The robot is a Wi-Fi enabled mobile webcam that allows users to view and interact with the device's environment through streaming video and audio.

After interrogation, Cheng was sent to the Taipei District Prosecutors Office for further investigation, according to police.

"whose home was tightly protected by a surveillance robot" don't make me laugh. It is basically a webcam on wheels. His home was also protected by a large metal shield... a door!
