GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — West Michigan photographer Marc Blondin says he doesn’t see how Amazon will be able to implement its drone delivery system in the immediate future.

Blondin, who uses so-called UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) to take pictures for A&G Images, says the machines cost thousands of dollars, and he thinks the risk of tampering and package theft will be a constant problem for the retail giant.

Amazon announced plans to implement drone delivery in the next few years on Sunday’s episode of 60 Minutes.
