Yesterday about 2 PM, a friend was north of the Pingree Road Metra Station at Fast Eddie’s getting the car washed when a black helicopter with “POLICE” marked in white on its sides landed next door.
Policemen dressed in tan were then seen blocking the road that goes west from Pingree to two motels, Harvest Bible Church and where Rosecrans took over drug counseling in The Advantage Group (TAG) building behind the motel.,
There were no marked squad cars in sight.
The helicopter took off with no one at Fast Eddie’s any the wiser.
Crystal Lake Police Commander Dan Dziewior says that it was a demonstration by Air One for the benefit of those attending the Illinois Park Police Association meeting at one of the motels.
