Puts that warning we saw at 11th and Kenyon St, NW in perspective.
i was walking north on 11th (between w and florida) around 3pm when i spotted luggage littered on the sidewalk. as i walked farther up the street, i could hear fresh car glass crackling. a white lexus suv with north carolina tags had just been broken into. the car was filled with luggage and it had been strewn throughout the sidewalk. the mpd was contacted and i didn’t stay on site to talk to them because it wasn’t my car and i’d given them all the information i knew. i couldn’t stop thinking about the car owner especially because they were from out of town. it seems like car break ins continue to happen whether there’s something visible to take or not. dear lexus owner from NC, i swear DC isn’t as horrible as you may be feeling it is right now!”
