Okay, so we’ve all gotten used (grudgingly) to the occasional Border Patrol traffic stops. And the increased muddle at the Canadian border. And the drone flights, where unmanned surveillance planes may be tracking our morning commute.
But now North Country Now has reported that a rash of mysterious camera boxes have popped up in St. Lawrence County, apparently positioned to watch highways. This from their article.
At least half a dozen boxes that apparently contain cameras have been hung on utility poles in St. Lawrence County, and in at least in one case, without authorization.
The Massena Electric Department recently removed one of the boxes from a pole it owns.
The cameras, in substantial light gray boxes mounted on the sides of poles, reportedly have been spotted in Massena, Norfolk, Norwood, Raymondville, Waddington, Canton, DeKalb Junction, and in Malone, too, according to Michael Jay of Norwood.
