Law enforcement in Orem, Utah, recently received a quadcopter that was turned in by a concerned citizen. The drone in question was being used illegally, and with voyeuristic intensions. That being said, you’ve really got to appreciate the humorous tone that the police took.

Police in Orem took to social media to encourage a man suspected of voyeurism to come forward after a citizen turned in the suspect’s drone Sunday, according to KSTU.

Orem police posted on Facebook about the drone they “found” Sunday, and they took a slightly humorous tone:

Apparently, the police already know who the offender is and I’m guessing that’s got a lot to do with the casual attitude that law enforcement is taking.
