The Metropolitan Police Department said Thursday that a 15-year-old boy was found trying to fly a drone near the Diet building and believe he is the same person who flew one over Zenkoji Temple in Nagano Prefecture last week.

Acting on a tip from a witness, police officers found the teen using a personal computer to manipulate a 30-sq.-cm drone equipped with a camera. He refused to say what he was doing with the drone and received a warning, they said.
