Duke Helps Capture Laser Strike Suspects

On July 10th a flight approaching John Wayne Airport (JWA) reported being struck with a green laser. JWA Tower called OCSD helicopter, Duke, and requested assistance. When the Duke pilots responded they were also hit with the laser several times while attempting to find the suspects. Duke was able to track them to the city of Garden Grove and direct Garden Grove PD ground units to the suspects. They were found with the laser in their possession and were arrested for the laser strikes.
