15th May 2015
The following is an update from locals in the Florida area who have been ‘snooping’ to try and make out whats been going on at Walmart in Brandon.
For a while, not much seemed to be going on here except emptying the store of merchandise (?) and then the pharmacy closing on 27th April 2015. Then in early May, semis arrived and things were loaded onto the semis (supposedly from garden center and makes senseas the garden center now missing merchandise). In April I drove around the back and security gave chase, next day they had shipping crates on east side to prevent people from going in back (except still wide enough for a car to go through). Then crates moved to behind store, and semis appeared. The semis now gone (May 13) and nothing is around the back or on sides at all, no trucks, no crates.
However METAL solid doors now block the two front entrances once about 15 feet past the front sliding glass doors (where the greeter would stand and the security monitor things stood).
According to godlike productions, these doors are also at Midland and Tulsa and they can withstand 12 gauge impacts and fire safe. Oh and the security car is not a silver one (same company) but is just like the red one that used to be there.
Here’s a close up of the doors
Decided to send up my little eye in the sky to see what kind of plumbing activity is possibly taking place at the closed Brandon / Valrico, FL Walmart. At approximately 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 2nd, 2015, I launched my quad copter from about 1,500 ft away, flying at an altitude of 125 ft – 350 ft from a secluded area as to not stir up any trouble. I observed a little red car circling the parking lot which I assumed was security, a fork lift driver either loading or unloading something from a blue container, also a red semi moving that one storage container and a good number of “Plumbers?” exiting their vehicles and entering the closed Walmart store from a side, rear entrance.

After posting my first video which I thought would be of some interest since this Brandon, FL. Walmart is one of five across the U.S. that closed suddenly without notice for 6 months due to plumbing issues, I had some extra time this afternoon to revisit this Walmart again to see if there was any visible changes from above concerning the plumbing problems. This is what I captured, read below…..
“This will be my last flight at this location due to the fact that only 12 minutes into it, one sheriff car passed me and parked at a nearby building and then a 2nd sheriff car appears @ 14 minutes which I believe had parked already. They watched and waited there until the descending location of my quad copter could be determined, which I caught by hand and immediately loaded into my back seat. I could see both officers staring me down as I entered my vehicle. As I drove around the parking lot where some nearby vacant business rentals are, the female officer, now in her car approached me and we both rolled down our windows. She asked if I was flying a drone and she said there was a complaint from a dentist office saying a drone was flying overhead, I told her that a buddy of mine was looking to rent a retail space nearby and wanted an aerial view of the vicinity. She asked why don’t you just look on google maps and I told her that the pictures there are usually old. She then told me to “watch out”, they get a lot of calls concerning those things. This is the raw video of my flight, nothing fancy, no editing, no music. If anything I possibly captured a theft occurring @ 3:11 when a person wheels out a cart to his car and unloads the items.
