One of the most common inquiries which comes to the Wedgwood Community Council via Facebook, Twitter and this webpage, is, “Why is there a helicopter hovering over Wedgwood?”
On the morning of Wednesday, August 3rd the helicopter of King County Sheriff’s Office Air Support assisted in the search for a man who had just robbed Rite-Aid at 8500 35th Ave NE. The suspect was apprehended in Lake City. Then on Friday evening, August 5th, the helicopter returned to assist the Seattle Police Department in another search after a reported theft near NE 65th Street.
When contacted by Twitter, the KCSO will reply as to the nature of the search. Our thanks to @OneBigStitch for this photo taken on August 5th.
@KCSOAirsupport What are you doing up there?
