An air traffic controller at Eppley Airfield in Omaha called police around 12:45 Thursday morning to report that someone was pointing a laser pointer at an inbound plane. They believed the suspect was in the 144th and Q Street area but couldn’t give a specific location.
About three hours later police were called to a home near that location after a report of someone knocking on a door and running. The victim saw juvenile males and one did have a laser pointer. Officers soon located an 11 year old boy in possession of a pointer. He was booked and then released to his mother.
