This morning just before 6am there was a SWAT raid on the row house directly next door to me near 14th and Meridian Pl NW in Columbia Heights. My house mates and I suspected drug dealing was going on at the residence based off all the suspicious comings and goings we have witnessed since we moved in three months ago. We woke up to flash bangs, doors being broken in, and SWAT members apprehending people. Unfortunately, we did not get to see any of the evidence being taken out of the house. While I hope to never have that kind of scary wake up again, props to the cops for their investigation and take down! Anyone else hear or see this?
Just caught this from the forum: “Caught this just a few minutes ago- [Friday 4:15pm] this taxicab was literally in flames. Luckily there is a fire station close by and it appears the driver was able to get out of the car. Pennsylvania was/ might still be blocked off from Washington Circle to 20th Street.”
