Heads Up if you Parked on the 1700 block of Swann St, NW


“Dear PoPville,

I was walking on the 1700 block of Swann Street NW a few minutes ago and came across a car that someone had broken into. The pillow and sheet were pulled completely out of the car but the suitcase inside looked intact (hopefully it is). I’m hoping that the owner is a PoPville reader, or maybe someone out there knows whose car this is and they can come salvage what’s left. For anyone wondering, I didn’t call MPD as I once tried to to flag down a MPD officer in a similar situation and he said that I’d have to call 911 and wait there for a cruiser to respond. Unfortunately I can’t do that today.”
