From MPD:

Wednesday about 12:30 pm, 5D arrested two young men who are charged with committing a burglary in the 1700 block of 4 St., NW, in PSA 501.

We have seen a recent upswing in burglaries in the corridor along North Capitol Street on both the northeast and northwest sides of the street, and we hope that today’s two arrests will have a significant impact on crimes being committed here.

While we are not sure that the burglaries that are taking place in the two areas are related, we are making large strides in identifying people we believe are responsible for much of this crime, and we hope that today’s arrests will lead to further elimination of this problem.

  • A policewoman addressed the Bloomingdale Civic Association meeting this week. When someone asked for help dealing with teens who have been videotaped stealing property in our neighborhood, shooting beebees at houses and committing other crimes, the cop essentially shrugged and said that there was little they could do since they’re underage. So there’s some proof some need that DC goes easy on crimes committed by teens.
