If you heard a chopper overhead or saw police dogs scouring the South Street area of the Arboretum Friday night, here's why: They were looking for suspects in an armed robbery.
State Police confirm that Boston Police asked them to help in the search for two or three suspects in an attempted armed robbery.
According to scanner-listener Stanley Staco, the person they tried to rob about 9 p.m. Friday was an off-duty police officer. Patch hasn't been able to confirm that aspect of the incident with Boston Police.
The search was called off after about 45 minutes, Staco reported, with no suspects in custody.
