What's the point of Easter Egg hunts? For these kids aged six to 12 ... it's to lay down and form human arrows to help police helicopters find fleeing robbery suspects. "The children quickly formed an arrow on the ground in the middle of a plowed field to guide the helicopter in the direction of the fleeing pair," a statement from police said. "The helicopter crew relayed this information to officers on the ground and a short time later two men were arrested."
“I’m sure the last thing the group of daring Capel residents expected when they set out on Friday afternoon was to abandon their Easter egg hunt to assist us in a police search, but the initiative they demonstrated proved to be invaluable,” said Sergeant Paul Sochon.
Two men, 28 and 27, were arrested on suspicion of burglary and ... released on bail.
