CPS Energy issues warning for drone owners

CPS Energy issued a warning for people who might have purchased or received drones over the holidays.

The utility said over the past few months it had four confirmed spottings of drones flying over critical infrastructure, like power plants.

“You don’t know whether or not the operator behind the drone is someone who’s up to criminal activity or someone who’s just playing with their Christmas gift,” Christine Patmon, CPS Energy spokesperson, said.

Patmon said the utility feared someone might obtain information that could shut down the energy system.
