Some people simply don't like drones. They might feel that they're intruding on their privacy or that they're just a plain nuisance. But sometimes drones can be used for a good cause.

Guess that didn't really matter to one Suffolk County man.

Police say a 26 year-old man used a shotgun to shoot a drone out of the sky Sunday. Police now say he's facing third-degree criminal mischief charges. What's making this a big deal, according to the NY Post, is that this remote control quadcoptor was searching fo a lost dog in the area.

The Post says a group called the Missing Angels Long Island was using the drone to search for the lost pooch around the man's house in Saint James, NY. The drone was reportedly valued at around $1,000. Police say the missing pets group lost contact with the drone at around 4:45 p.m., and used the machine's GPS to track the downed copter near the man's home.
