Police Helicopter Used Overnight Above Levittown
Bristol Township police confirm that the helicopter was used to assist officers early Friday morning.
Residents in parts of Levittown were awoken Friday morning by a low-flying Philadelphia Police Department helicopter that was helping Bristol Township police deal with an incident.
Police Sgt. Chuck Burns said he could not elaborate on what officers were doing, but the area is safe and residents should not be fearful for their safety.
An investigation is being conducted in the area of Red Cedar and air support was called to assist, Burns said.
Residents of Colbolt Ridge, Crab Tree, Indian Creek, Quincy Hollow, Violetwood and several other sections reported hearing the police chopper over their homes just before 1 a.m.
At 1:20 a.m., Burns said that police had mostly cleared the scene in Red Cedar, but close to 1:45 a.m. a resident reported hearing a helicopter overhead again.
Due to several factors, police said they could not release more information as of early Friday morning.
Philadelphia police and state police often assist Bucks and Montgomey county agencies with air support.
