Dear Scottish Government,

1) How many prosecutions took place in 2017 for the use of a drone to
commit a criminal offence? These are crimes that would typically be
prosecuted using the Air Navigation Order legislation.

2) How many prosecutions took place in 2017 in total of all crimes? (This is
just to derive a percentage of drone prosecutions versus all other crime).

Yours faithfully,
