Probably got their stingrays out to catch some illicit activity.

Though it's usually the FBI out running patterns like that.

Stingray equipment is basically a phoney (sorry for the pun) cell station, when numbers you are after connect you can intercept all data, txts or phone calls.

It could well be the DEA but they dont just hand them out, their use has to be allowed by a judge as far as i know, much like any warrant.

Depends on the mode they use.

However I'm going to assume active. Using a MitM attack in order to listen into conversations.

I would think it is more likely they are looking for grow operations since it is the DEA.

That would be the JTTF (Joint Terrorism Task Force) which consists of local (Atlanta and other PD from around the state), GBI, FBI, DEA, and Army working together in order to share resources and promote inter-agency cooperation. It was created to track and stop terrorism and human trafficking, but mostly gets used for drug interdiction.

Well they're probably out crusading upon our civil rights and liberties to keep us all safe from monsters and the devil's lettuce. Meanwhile no one bothers sniffing or the people that are actually threats to us all. Oh well, waste of good engineering to use an aircraft in that manner.
