A Maine woman who was harassed by a drone for two days says police told her they could nothing about it.

Mary Dunham says the drone tracked her in her car as she drove to a gas station, where she called police, and then to her Gorham home on Tuesday. She says it followed her to her brother's house the following day.

The Portland Press Herald reports that some states have laws that make it a crime to use drones for surveillance that violates a person's reasonable expectation of privacy. Maine is not one of them.
