That Police Helicopter in Deerfield Beach Is Responding to a Burglary in Progress

Just a heads-up: The big to-do on the 1200 block of SW 25th Avenue in Deerfield Beach is a response to what the Broward Sheriff's Office called a "burglary in progress" that sounds like it's more complicated than just somebody climbing in a window -- they report deputies have surrounded the area and are using a helicopter and dogs to contain the situation.

I just asked for more information, and they said they'd get back to me when they know more. Either way, they're asking the public avoid the area for now. Will update if we get some more info.
