BUTTERNUTS – “Today looked like a scene out of the movies. It started with a heavy police presence in town followed by a helicopter patrolling the sky,” said Wendy Bovee Oldham on The Evening Sun’s Facebook page. “I watched a helicopter land next to my house at the fishing access.” She said a man dressed in camouflage jumped from the helicopter with what she thought looked like a type of machine gun in his hand.
This response stemmed from a multi-agency search for four individuals in the New Berlin/South New Berlin/Butternuts area on Wednesday.
New York State Police responded to a residence on County Route 18 in the Town of Butternuts in Otsego County at approximately 2:48 p.m. for a 911 call of a home invasion burglary.
