I'd worry that the drone had a GPS receiver has a beacon for the coppers to find it again. If they track it down to your shed, you'll be in a spot of trouble.

Hijacking control is interesting, but just crashing the copter would be useful if you're a criminal enterprise that wants that eye-in-the-sky gone so you can make your escape.

The best acquisitions will be the Amazon and Google delivery craft if they get permission to fly. They'll have heavier lift capability and chances are good that once you get it down and wrapped in a RF shield, a retrieval team won't be nearby like with a police operation. The added bonus is that since drone delivery is likely to be expensive, what is being delivered is also likely to be of high value.
