As Walden recalls her conversation with the French police she said:

“This year, as what they called ‘the seasonal activity’ reached fever pitch, they were most concerned with the drones many burglary victims had seen flying over their homes days before break-ins.”

“Drones which were being used to case the joint.”

“Drones like the one my husband had seen hovering over the back garden a week before the burglary.”

The thieves reportedly stole jewelry and cash from Walden’s purse but left her credit cards and other family tech such as smartphones and laptops.
