CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) -- Carlsbad Caverns National Park has adopted the ban on drones.

Officials said anyone caught using model airplanes, quadcopters or other types of drones within the park's boundaries could face fines and possible jail time.

National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis directed all parks in June to take steps to prohibit the use of the increasingly popular aircraft that are often used to take photos and videos.

Southwest national parks like Canyonlands, Arches, Grand Canyon and Zion have recently put bans in place.
