Police at Washington Plaza Hotel Monday Night?

“Dear PoPville,

Does anyone know what was going on last night at the Washington Plaza Hotel (on Scott Thomas Circle)? There was a major police presence (I must have counted about 10 cruisers, a fire truck, and an ambulance was arriving as I was walking away). This was just before 9pm. It was also taped off and parts of the entrance appeared to remain taped this morning. Do you know what happened? I can’t seem to find anything on MPD’s Twitter or anywhere else.”

  • That’s Thomas Circle, not Scott. There are prostitution busts there periodically. Maybe another of those?

  • I’m pretty sure I saw a robbery reported here on the 3D crime report a day or two ago. It wasn’t clear if the robbery was inside or outside the hotel.

  • That tape around the entrance drive has been there for weeks – I think they are doing so re-sealing of the driveway.

    Also, has anyone else noticed that the road out in front is always full of water, no matter what the weather? It makes me wonder if there is a leaking water main under there that’s going to eventually cause some giant sinkhole.

  • I am taking training down in that part of town and the woman who is sitting next to me in class told me that a hotel guest in the room next to her committed suicide. I’m not 100% certain, but I believe that is the same hotel she is staying that, so it might be that. Could be wrong, though.
