None of the websites are reporting any fires. I think we're OK but that helicopter was scary

Not sure what was going on but it was a Sheriff's helicopter responding from the Santa Ynez base to something at Mission Canyon.

Panga boat in Mission Creek. Oh wait, the Sheriff doesn't patrol for them.

My neighborhood too, La Cumbre Plaza area, but maybe it was just heading home. First things first, I locked my back sliding door. Good thing I got lots of windows. Wondered if it was a search.

Kinda wonder what the Sanctuary sheriff budget is gonna look like next year, better enjoy those expensive flights. Trumpets from DC have said no bailout money for sanctuary police budgets, and the plan is to drop the POL out of POLICE. Then they can be held accountable under federal law. Also drains the union swamp. Similar with schools and their unions....

Whatever happened it was on Cheltenham. Heard a 10-4 over the scanner and the helicopter left.

Don't know if it was connected but a lot of code 3 City cops, then cordoned off the area for suspect on Cota. They found what they thought was the weapon so I turned it off about 9:30. When I heard the SO on the copter by us next to Mission Cyn. City was saying they found the weapon and SO cleared the copter. They all cleared so I couldn't tell if it was the same call.

Last thing I listened to was acouple guys in a vehicle on the West side then what was thought to be a burglary on Cota or Ortega 600 West but then it might have just been a trespassing...9 or 90ish....

Always keep your doors and windows locked even if your at home you'ld be surprised how many people just walk into other people homes...

I'm guessing SO' s air unit is doing training....if not...the little Kiowa which is primarily for law enforcement could be being using infra-red, lojack, searchlight or video. It's been busy going to SM, SY and Lompoc besides here, all but one at night. Scheduled for 2:30 am tonight.

Its Edison. They are taking photos and assessing the power lines. This was anounced in Next Door and they are doing this in all areas, not just Mission Canyon

LORAX, you need to read the posts. This is about the confirmed OH 58 Sheriffs' copter at 10 pm..."at night". Edison does not fly at night. This is about Santa Barbara Sheriffs' copter N1859W which is confirmed on these flights by flightradar24 for several nights late pm and early am. ....Read the posts instead of blindly assuming this is about something else.......look at the times. Read to post right next to you.

Don't know if it's related, a sheriff helicopter circled multiple times over Refugio closing the freeway for about half an hour late Saturday afternoon... Anyone know what happened? This was after a couple of low level passes about an hour before...

UCSB98 Yes, this is related, there was a scheduled flight for N1859W at 3:19 pm. I've checked several flight path records and have only seen flights by the OH 58. Feel free to post for any other tail numbers and I'll gladly let you know of any other SO flights and or times.

I just checked to be sure and the second flight for 16 minutes was from 4:14 to 4:30 yesterday pm for the big twin engine UH-1N which was N911HN.....so many flights I'm not checking each unless there is some specific incident.

Interesting that the freeway was also closed and that this chopper circled that part of the closed freeway multiple times during that 15 minutes...
