Is this story seems real?



(An american who traveled from Greece to Macedonia got ripped of his drone by macedonian customs who seems to use their power to steal such object and sell it after....)

If it's true, I'm finaly happy that my car broke down in Serbia in september when I was doing my Balkan trip..., if I reached Macedonia maybe they would have steal my drone as well...

I would have turned back and crossed through another border crossing.

This is why my willingness to visit third-world countries with long record of corruption diminishes everyday.

I don't think that it could work that way, I don't know the laws but I don't think that this is that simple, they probably won't let you go back...

Actualy the one that I see at the romanian/hungarian border and at the romanian/serbian border are okay, some of them are even making joke/trying to speak my mother tongue (I'm from France) and some are even smiling.... and so far none of them have tried to take something from me (money or objects)...

Real shame for the experience of this guy, but here is an article where the police says that the drones were confiscated (the article is in Macedonian).

http://kurir.mk/makedonija/vesti/dro...-tsarina-foto/

Quote:
– 3 дронови, откриени во два одвоени случаи на граничниот премин Меџитлија, при контрола на два автомобили пријавени за влез во државата.

Во првиот случај, во пластични кутии сместени во багажникот на француски автомобил, управуван од американски државјанин, биле пронајдени 2 дронови.

Во вториот случај, во багажникот на грчки автомобил, управуван од грчки државјанин бил пронајден 1 дрон.
Quick translation:

Quote:
3 drones were found in two separate cases on the border crossing Medzitlija.

In the first case, in plastic boxes in a french car, operated by American citizen, were found 2 drones.

In the second case, in a Greek car operated by Greek citizen was found one drone.
I'm not saying that the officers are not corrupted, but it seems to me that this guy is dramatizing too much. In the last year due to several incidents with drones, the authorities are more strict considering the drones.

If they wanted to sell the drones, why would they reported them to the media? It doesn't make sense to me.

Interesting, thanks for the article!

Okay, so I guess that there is a law in Macedonia that is telling that caring a drone is prohibited...? (I never heard of such laws anywhere in the world).

At least it's a good point that it don't seems to look that much like a corruption case...

I had root canal work done 3 times now... All completely painless, it's just annoying that it takes an hour or even two.

You didn't get anesthesia? Or maybe it was not good?
Because you shouldn't feel much if it's done proper.

I know because I went through both cases

It was generally painless, but once the file reached one point in canal, I felt such a pain I could track the nerves from my tooth to my brain. But now it is okay. I had a terrible toothache beforehand. Now I feel relief.

We both suffered yesterday. I had colonoscopy for the third time. Parts of my bowel were sent by plane to Amsterdam.

I'm pretty sure that transporting drones over most world borders is not something that would be trivial with respective border police or customs. People, that have visited just EU countries usually don't have a clue, that crossing borders with a car is still a complicated thing in most cases.

Next year I plan to go to USA so I'm already wondering if Russian and Belarusian visas in my passport won't cause problems on US border. In theory that shouldn't be a problem but I've heard so many "interesting" stories about US border police so I'm not completely without worry.

Maybe you should make a new passport just to be sure
Although it will be more interesting for us to hear your experience if you keep it
