Woman Calls Cops After Spotting Drone Hovering Outside Her Apartment

Police were called to a downtown apartment complex early Sunday after a woman was gazing out of her apartment window…and something gazed back.

Around 7:45 AM, the woman was looking out her apartment window, near Terry Ave. and Stewart St., when she saw spied an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)—or “drone”—hovering outside her building.

The woman, concerned the drone was looking into her apartment, called and reported the incident to her building concierge, who immediately called police. The concierge also went outside the building and spotted two men piloting the drone. The men, who were also carrying a tripod and video camera, soon packed up their gear, climbed into a white Mazda, and drove away.

Police are investigating whether any surveillance cameras in the area captured the incident and don’t yet know much about the drone flyers. We can confirm, however, that they definitely weren’t ours.
