Drone worth $3,000 stolen from Recreation and Parks 

A quadcopter owned by San Francisco's Recreation and Parks Department was stolen last Tuesday morning, according to the department. The drone, or unmanned aerial vehicle, was also equipped with a camera.

Valued at more than $3,000, the equipment was taken at approximately 6 a.m. from a city employee's vehicle while parked at the McLaren Lodge, according to spokeswoman Connie Chan.

Chan said the Department has acquired quadcopters to try the technology out as a way of assessing trees and park facilities for maintenance, repairs and other improvements.

One system has been tested one time, but department management directed their employees not to use the technology again until the city develops policies and guidelines for their use, Chan said.
