Residents always fear the worst when they hear a helicopter buzzing in circles over their homes.
But in the case of the helicopter over the Hillwood neighborhood on Wednesday night, it was simply chance that Guardian-1 was in the vicinity when Shoreline Police were in the middle of an action.
A Shoreline police unit had executed a narcotics search warrant earlier in the day on Wednesday, in the 100 block of NW 200th Street. At about 7:25pm one of the suspects came home and the police were called.
The suspect fled on foot. Guardian-1 was already in the air and just happened to be in the area, so they assisted with the search, which was unsuccessful.
It’s likely the suspect left in a vehicle. The suspects are known to police, it's a non-violent crime, and police expect to make contact.
