  • These ppl are complete fools. They live 1 block away, (AND THE POLICE STATION IS RIGHT NEXT DOOR) of course you were going to get caught. smh Good Job MPD

  • Actually proximity to a police station has not impact on crime in DC. There may be a dozen cars parked over there but there is very little to any real police presence. Greenleaf is a mess so this DEA bust is long overdue. Redeveloping the property which is underway will help.

    • I’m fully aware. There’s been gun shots regularly in the last week or so and safeway has also been robbed. I just think its sad, that’s all.

  • Whoever is living in that unit should lose their rights to public housing.

  • In theory it works that way. In practice almost never. Likely the unit rented by a grandmother or cousin etc who will claim ignorance etc and maybe thats the case. I would bet half these guys don’t even in live in Greenleaf but given the lax policing in the area it becomes the home base for all kinds of activities.
