LEAWOOD, Kan. — A Leawood man says his family’s privacy was violated by a neighbor who flew a drone too close to his house, near his teenage stepdaughter’s bedroom window.
Now he’s concerned is that the police can’t do much to stop it.
“The Peeping Toms that we knew 10 to 15 years ago that used to come in the yard, hide in the bushes and look in the first story window are now replaced by guys who can be across the street, down the block or even a mile away,” said Tim Wood.
When questioned by police, the pilot denied having a camera on the drone.
Sgt. Scott Hansen says while there are state privacy laws on the books, the law just unfortunately doesn’t keep up with technology sometimes.
