Hopefully the guy isn't spraying the desert with lead in the course of having fun with drones.

Fairly standard payload for a drones_worth of heroin flying over the Mexican border is about 13 pounds (2017).

How many are being intercepted? Recent experience suggests a maximum rate of one in six.

Could be much lower.

edit:

YMMV. Calexico shipment. 28 lbs.

Americans could see a lot more drones flying around their communities as the result of a Trump administration test program to increase government and commercial use of the unmanned aircraft.

President Trump gave the go-ahead Wednesday, signing a directive intended to increase the number and complexity of drone flights.

The presidential memo would allow exemptions from current safety rules so communities could move ahead with testing of drone operations.
...
Safety concerns over drones have risen recently after the collision of a civilian drone and an Army helicopter over Staten Island, N.Y., and the first verified collision in North America between a drone and a commercial aircraft in Quebec City, Canada.
