Police Use Helicopter for Doughnut Run

From Times Wire Reports

Albuquerque police have taken doughnut runs to new heights, swooping down in an official helicopter for a late-night snack.

“I don’t know how they decided that was a good idea,” said Lt. Bob Huntsman, department spokesman.

Huntsman said the department is investigating.

“If they violated policy or procedure, they’re going to get disciplined for it,” he said. “We’ve worked too hard to make this a professional unit to let lack of common sense tear us down.”


Huntsman confirmed it happened but said he had not yet spoken to those aboard. He said it appeared the two officers were near the end of their shift and probably were flying back to a hangar on the same side of town when they stopped for Krispy Kremes.
