Federal, state and local law enforcement agencies are increasingly using drones to spy domestically, the Washington Post reports, citing newly released documents.

The agencies are borrowing drones from Border Patrol in what could become more commonplace in the future, the Post wrote.

CBP has the largest domestic drone fleet and flew about 700 spying missions from 2010 to 2013, according to flight logs.

The agencies most involved borrowing the unmanned aircraft are the DEA, Coast Guard and immigration officials.

The aircraft has been used to search for drugs, meth labs and missing people.

Civil libertarians worry that the aircraft could mean ubiquitous surveillance of Americans on private property, the Post wrote.
