Tiny Helicopter Sabotage?
A man came into headquarters to report on April 28 at 9:22 p.m. that earlier that day he had been flying a remote control helicopter at Peabody Field when it crashed to the ground and was damaged. Hours later when he returned home and watched the video footage taken from the helicopter's camera, it appeared as if the helicopter had been shot down by some sort of BB gun. The two rear propellers were destroyed before the device hit the ground. Another man in the park had told the helicopter owner that he had seen something hit the helicopter in the air. The helicopter owner left the video footage with the police.
