    “I also wanted to find someone who the General Assembly would immediately say, ‘That is a great pick.” Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D)
    Sure you did… that is why you bypassed the General Assembly.

    Any info as to why the Fairfax Police Heli was circling above Lake Anne for 40 minutes last night?

    • Karen Goff

      Several people asked, so I asked FCPD and they said it was not theirs. Perhaps there was a medical emergency somewhere?

      • LakeAnne

        Listening to the police scanner, the pilot of the helicopter identified herself as Fairfax One, and several cruisers reported suspects on a bench on the path along North Shore, and heavy pedestrian traffic at Lake Anne Plaza. So, I’m pretty sure it was theirs.

          Well, that’s what they told me. If it was something very newsworthy, they would have had more info.

            Interesting. This was actually the first time I’ve ever used the “5-0 Radio” App on my phone, and was able to recognize the part of Fairfax they were talking about. I heard officers in the cruiser broadcast that they were “pulling up on the back side of lake anne plaza” and from my house saw the blue lights flashing between the trees. I listened for a few minutes before and Officer advised that they switch to a different channel. Minutes after that all broadcasts seemed to be related to an event happening in Springfield. Something definitely newsworthy happened last night. I bet my friends at the Lake Anne Market will know.

    FINALLY got some more info and an apology from FCPD for not being able to get correct info earlier. Here is the story. https://www.restonnow.com/2015/07/29/purse-stolen-from-lake-anne-area-home-leads-to-fcpd-chopper-search/
