WTH are they looking for?

Okay so on Halloween DH and I were outside handing out candy and we noticed this helecopter with a giant spotlight. We were like WHOA! haha we're from a pretty small town and we don't see stuff like that often. We guessed that it was just out to keep an eye on a crazy halloween night. Well it came back for like a week and we decided it wasnt halloween that made them come out haha... then they just stopped. Its back again tonight! I was in my backyard taking the animals out to potty and it went right over the house and it put its spotlight on me. Scared the crap out of me! Then it flew off. Well it came back like 3 times to shine me so I stood under the patio so they couldnt see me and they didnt come back after that but I can still hear them out there. WTH are they looking for or doing?

  • They might be looking for drugs in the area. The state police often do fly bys to see if they can locate pot plants in our area. There were some found a few years ago doing this so now they do this every year. Next time, just moon them ;)

  • Well when i lived in so. california (where i grew up) if the helicopters were out they were monitoring gang activity or something had happened and they were looking for someone. I live in a small town now so if I saw something like that here i would be a little worried but of course word would spread like wildfire about what was going on lol.
