Green lasers blinding pilots
FBI seeks information on offenders

Someone has been flashing pilots with lasers in the Statesboro area, and federal agents are looking for the culprits. The complaints were first made to the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office, but the issue transferred to a division of the Georgia State Patrol and is not being handled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said GSP Capt. Kirk McGlamery. Sheriff’s deputies received calls about a United Parcel Service (UPS) airplane pilot reporting being “flashed” by a green laser as he traveled towards the Statesboro airport.
