    Imagine relaxing in your home and seeing a drone flying near your window — that's exactly what police in Hollis, New Hampshire, are investigating.

    "Pretty scary stuff," said Mike Close. "Certainly an invasion of privacy. It bothered me, bothered my wife."

    While Close hasn't been a victim, he says he's concerned by reports that someone may be peering into bedroom windows using a drone.

    "It's happening in the east side of the city," explained Hollis Police Lt. Rick Bailey.

    "I think we're going to make sure our curtains are all drawn from now on," Close said.

    Bailey said police have received two reports of drone activity from June 20 to July 29, but so far, they don't have a suspect.

    According to Bailey, flying a drone near a bedroom window could have serious consequences. The operator could face stalking and disturbing the peace charges.
