Teens arrested after lasers pointed at planes at Regina airport

REGINA  – Police say they took five teens into custody after someone directed laser beams at planes at the Regina airport.

Airport CEO Jim Hunter says pilots on a United Airlines flight that landed about 11:25 p.m. on Sunday first reported laser beams shining into the cockpit.

Hunter says the pilots were uninjured and there were no consequences.

Police discovered five teenagers on a rooftop and took three boys and two girls into custody.

Officers confiscated a laser from one of the males.

An investigation into a second laser beam coming from the north end of the city did not yield any suspects.
