Apparently you really can buy anything online, including an unmanned military surveillance drone. Homeland security agents were shocked when they saw the drones for sale on eBay. Military.com reports, federal authorities had a drone shipped to an undercover officer. That led to the arrest of a man in the Philippines. He had been selling the advanced surveillance drone for $13,000. That's a bargain from the normal $35,000 price tag. If convicted he could face 20 years in prison.
