SEATTLE (AP) -- Police say an out-of-town Amazon employee was the operator behind a drone that buzzed the Seattle Space Needle this week.

Witnesses told police they saw the craft fly back into a fifth-floor room in a nearby hotel. Police contacted the man who admitted operating the drone equipped with a camera Tuesday. He told authorities he wanted to try out the recently purchased craft.

Police had received reports the drone had crashed into the landmark of Seattle's 1962 World's Fair but they saw no evidence of that.
