“Somebody did see something in the sky, but what it was we don’t know,” said Sgt. Barry White, 32 Division. “It might have been someone playing with one of those remote control helicopters from one of the condos.”
The first UFO report came in around 7 p.m., White said. Police officers also saw the lights on their way into work around 10 p.m.
“[Officers] were stopping to talk to people, and we did hear from others on the street that apparently there was something up there.”
White says he is not aware of a protocol for police to follow on UFO sightings.
“If it was something dangerous and we could do something under the criminal code, we might. Police would go try and check it out,” he said. “But to actually go and investigate it further as a UFO — I don’t think we would. I’m trying not to laugh!”
