Authorities doubt truth of drone letter

    A mysterious group chasing a 16-year-old UFO case has taken credit for the recent spate of drone sightings in Colorado and Nebraska, but some in law enforcement, including Chase County Sheriff Kevin Mueller, are doubtful.
    In a letter to the Yuma, Colorado Pioneer newspaper, a man who identifies himself as Michael Spicer said the drones are from an organization he founded, ArchAngel RECON.
    “The whole letter is just a little odd to me,” Mueller said. “I don’t know what he’s trying to do—make himself famous, I don’t know.”
    Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said that agency cannot discuss specific aspects of the investigation, but he released the following statement from the agency:
     “We’re not going to comment on claims concerning the reported drone sightings in parts of Colorado and Nebraska in late December and early January. The FAA has not received any information that has enabled us to identify individuals or agencies that may have been operating the drones that people reported seeing.”
