Denton police continue search for laser cannon stolen from KCS

Police in Denton, Texas, have stepped up their search for a high-powered laser cannon used to align railroad tracks.

Pen-sized laser pointers available at office supply stores and elsewhere have been blamed for mischief on the ground but are considered too weak to affect a pilot when shined into a cockpit. The laser cannon, on the other hand, is far more powerful and has a longer range.

The 2-foot-long laser, valued at $12,000, was taken sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Friday (January 21) from the bed of a Kansas City Southern Rail pickup in West Denton.

The full report is on the Dallas Morning News website.
