Helicopter helps Fresno police catch robbery suspect

An armed robbery suspect was booked into jail after Fresno police used their helicopter to catch him.

Authorities arrested Gentry Cooper, 21, just before 11 p.m. Friday. They say he stole a bottle of liquor from a store at Kings Canyon Road and Clovis Avenue in Southeast Fresno, and then threatened to shoot a loss prevention officer who tried to stop him.

The victim ran for safety and called 911 while the suspect ran from the scene. A police helicopter guided officers on the ground, who took Cooper into custody.
