Police said they had stumbled upon overnight testing of the drone at a little-used airstrip in Calverton, Long Island.Watch the full report on News 4 New York at 11 p.m. Friday after the Olympics

The investigation began in February of last year, when investigators first learned testing of the drone was underway. Officials said the drone was being designed to carry more than 600 pounds of explosives.
