Police helicopter sent out in Exeter was "false alarm"
A police helicopter was called out to a possible burglary in Exeter at roughly 9pm last night, however police have described the incident as a “false alarm”.
The report of a burglary was called in by a resident in the Whipton area but when officers attended they “found this not to be the case”.
The Exeter public turned to twitter to find out about the search helicopter.

“Anyone is exeter right now?! What is going on? Loads of police&search helicopter over by the cinema”
@wayneslowman also commented on the helicopter:
“#exeter #police Can you hurry up and catch the perps as the #helicopter is a bit loud and I can't hear me telly. Thanks #onlybeingsilly”
The same helicopter was then called out late last night to help in the search for a missing male in the Pinhoe and Mincinglake area. The male was soon located nearby by officers and taken to a place of safety.
