NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York City police say some recent incidents involving wayward drones show that the popularity of the remote-controlled aircraft poses potential risks.
NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence John Miller told reporters, including WCBS 880’s Jim Smith, on Wednesday that police have seen five incidents of drones in the past six months.
“It’s a fairly new phenomenon,” Miller said. “This is a bit of a toy for people who have time on their hands and maybe too much money. But it’s a toy that you have to be very careful with.”
