POLICE have warned of the serious consequences of misusing laser pens after yobs have been shining them through windows in Ilkeston.

Incidents have been reported in Marshall Way and Queen Elizabeth Way in Kirk Hallam and Hallam FIelds Road.

PCSO Matthew Lewis said that incidents have increased over the last three months,

“If a pen is pointed at a vehicle or aircraft the consequences can be serious, endangering the driver/pilot and their passengers as well as putting bystanders at significant risk,” he warned.

“In Derbyshire, people have been prosecuted for this offence.

“Please think before you use a laser pen as you could be endangering others and you could end up in court.”

Call police on 101 to report laser pen misuse.
