Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - Las Vegas Metro Police are looking for the owner of a drone that crashed into Allegiant Stadium.

It happened back on November 21st and caused between $5,000 and $8,000 in damage to one of the stadium's glass panels.

Surveillance video from that day even shows a man talking to security to try and get that drone back. According to a report filed with Metro, stadium security said that after they refused to give the drone back, the man left in a black BMW X3. That vehicle was later found to be a rental, which was returned to Hertz rental company.

So far, there's no description of the suspect, who faces charges that include destruction of property and unlawful operation of a drone if found.
