Canonsburg man accused of using drone to stalk teenage girls

CANONSBURG, Pa. — A Canonsburg man is facing charges after he allegedly used a drone to stalk teenage girls.

According to police, the situation started when Michael Brackman, 44, used a drone to follow a 13-year-old neighbor.

Brackman allegedly used his drone at least 120 times to stalk girls, following them when they left their house, jumped on trampolines and at the playground.

We’ve learned Brackman flew the drone outside some of their bedroom windows.

Officers say more underage victims and their parents came to the police station with sexual notes that they say Brackman left for their child on their porch, as well as flyers he put up around the neighborhood using actual photos he took of kids with his drone.

At least one family moved away from the area because of the alleged stalking.

Brackman was taken to the Washington County Jail.
