Wondering what all the helicopter traffic was about Sunday night?
Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman Cynthia Arrona confirmed Patch readers' reports of a a helicopter circling at length in the area of Ximeno late Sunday.
At least one suspect was captured, Arrona said, but further details are planned for release later this week as part of information about a series of incidents.
From about 10 p.m. to nearly 11 p.m. Sunday, a police helicopter and police cars saturated the Belmont Heights area of Ximeno between Broadway and Vista, residents told Patch.
"We had the copter flying over low and circling for way over 30 minutes," reported one resident who lives near the above intersection. "It was actually very unsettling!"
Said Arrona, "The police helicopter was assisting patrol officers with a burglary investigation about that time." She confirmed there was an arrest.
