You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
“Good afternoon, today, Third District members working in a covert capacity were able to apprehend and arrest two suspects for stealing packages at two different locations. In the first incident, officers observed a suspect in the vicinity of the 1200 block of S Street, N.W. This suspect was riding a bicycle and carrying a box believed to be stolen. An investigation revealed that the recovered items were, in fact, stolen and the suspect was arrested and the property recovered.
In the second instance, a suspect was observed in the vicinity of the 1600 block of Florida Avenue, N.W. carrying two large packages believed to be stolen. When approached by officers, the suspect admitted to stealing the packages and was placed under arrest.
In both of these incidents, officers were addressing increased reports of package thefts and they were knowledgeable of theft patterns and suspect descriptions previously provided by citizens. As always, the MPD appreciates the community’s support and we ask that you remain vigilant. Thank you.”
