Police Helicopters Wednesday Night

pollice helicopterFor those of you that live in northern Park View or southern Petworth, you may have wondered what was up with the police helicopters last night. It’s my understanding that a liquor store on Georgia Ave. was robbed there was a robbery and the helicopters were part of the police response.

If anyone knows more about this incident, please share what you know.

  1. This is what I heard from the MPD-4D Yahoo Group

    “I spoke to the watch commander in ref to this. Officer Beam confirmed the sounds were not gunfire but fireworks.

    Also, the helicopter is in the area due to a separate incident. We had a robbery earlier that involved a stolen car. We found the car in the 400 blk of Shepherd St and we asked for the helicopter to assist with additional lighting so we could use our K-9 to try and track the suspects that were in the vehicle.

  3. All that said, it appears Lion’s Liquors may have been robbed last night too based on the 3D Crime report I’m reading through.

    I mean its great to know that why the chopper was overhead. But, I am not yet convinced that the chopper is the most effective means of apprehending a suspect. Okay, I’ll admit it… I just hate the sound of it.
