The police in San Bernardo have confirmed that the hostess, Angelica Navarro Pereira, kept 21 cannabis sativa plants just over 1.5 meters tall at home, the highest being 1.74 meters, plus 29 bags of marijuana bags badged for sale.
Police also seized 250,000 pesos ($4,000) of suspected criminal proceeds from drug trade.
To protect her treasure, the woman kept two homemade shotguns, consisting of two metal tubes each with its respective firing pins.
The investigation into Pereira's alleged illegal cultivation and sale began a month ago.
Pereira was transferred to the Court of Guarantee of San Bernardo, along with the evidence, where she face drug trafficking charges.
Called System-Aware Secure Sentinel, the new system detects “illogical behavior” compared to how the aircraft normally operates.
“Detections can serve to initiate automated recovery actions and alert operators of the attack,” said Barry Horowitz, a systems and information engineer at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, in a statement.
Apparently, the system is meant to prevent embarrassing situations like the loss of a US spy drone in December 2011 to Iran. A CIA RQ-170 Sentinel drone was brought down after what the Iranians claimed to have been a hacker attack as it was flying in the country’s airspace.
The Iranians said they used a technique called “spoofing” where they sent the drone the wrong coordinates and tricked it into believing it was landing at its home base in Afghanistan when in fact it was landing on Iranian territory.
Various threats were simulated by the researchers during five days of in-flight tests, including cyber-attacks launched from the ground, interference with supply chains and attacks from military insiders.
The attacks focused on four different areas, GPS data, location data, information about imagery, on-board surveillance and control of payloads and took place over five days. In each scenario the system was able to detect cyber-attacks, the team said.
"The inflight testing gauged the effectiveness of the countermeasure technology in hardening the unmanned system's cyber agility and resiliency under attack conditions," the researchers said.
The technology was developed with funds from the US Department of Defense. The project involved collaboration between the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Virginia.

"Coal deliveries to the thermal power station have been resumed. Wagons with about 50,000 tons of coal have already been sent to the thermal power units to meet the needs of the power system. This coal had been blocked at the border with Russia for several days," a representative for Ukrainian Energy Ministry representative, Elena Mishchenko, wrote in a Facebook post.
The newly arrived coal is expected to help alleviate Ukraine’s mounting energy crisis, which suffered another blow after a deal to import South African coal collapsed earlier this week.
“Once we can resolve the issue of coal supplies we can achieve a lower price for electricity generation,” said Vladimir Demchyshyn, Ukraine’s Energy Minister said, at a press conference this week. “We have power stations, but we can’t use them to their full capacity unless we have enough fuel to run them.”
Ukraine’s energy shortage was prompted when Russia cut off the country’s natural gas supply in June as a result of Ukraine’s outstanding $5.3 billion debt to Russian state-owned gas giant, Gazprom. Meanwhile, hostilities in the war-torn Donbass region have halted coal production and supply to the country’s power plants, further exacerbating the crisis.
The South African coal deal Ukraine was banking on to help the country through the upcoming winter months, fell through when the head of a Ukrainian state energy firm involved in brokering the agreement was detained on suspicion of embezzlement. In another attempt to stave off the crisis, the country’s gas importer, Naftogaz has struck a deal with Gazprom for the delivery of 1 billion cubic meters of Russian gas in December as Ukraine gears up for a chilly winter.
Currently, the country is facing mass electricity cuts. The Energy Ministry has imposed limits on consumption between 8 and 11 in the morning and between 4 and 8 in the evening.
On Friday, Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers decided to extend emergency measures for the domestic electricity market until January—the third time such an extension has been granted over the last six months.
