“Dear PoPville,

I don’t know how you decide what to post in Props to the Cops, but wanted to pass along this story about animal cruelty. It is so awful it makes my stomach churn. But props to the cops and WHS/WRL for arresting the person responsible.”

From the Washington Humane Society:

“D.C. resident, Brenda Bullock, was arrested this morning by the Metropolitan Police Department 5th District Warrant Squad and charged with three counts of cruelty to animals following an investigation by Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League Humane Law Enforcement (HLE) officers.

From MPD:

“This morning [Tuesday] at approximately 12:30 AM, members of the Fourth District’s Crime Suppression Team were on patrol when they observed a vehicle traveling in the 5700 block of Georgia Avenue, NW, with no headlights on. The officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle, which was occupied by three males. When the officers approached the vehicle the two passengers fled from the vehicle on foot. The officers gave chase to the subjects and caught one in the 5700 block of Georgia Avenue, NW, and the other in the 800 block of Marietta Place, NW. The officers noticed that the passengers were holding their waistbands as they ran so the area where the subjects ran was canvassed by officers. One pistol was located in the 5700 block of Georgia Avenue, NW, and another was located in the 5700 block of 9th Street, NW. The two subjects were then placed under arrest for Carrying a Pistol Without a License and other related firearms offenses. The driver remained with the vehicle; however, a check was conducted and it was determined that the driver did not possess a valid driver’s permit. The driver was then placed under arrest for not having a valid driving permit.”

“Greeting to the citizens of the Second District,

The person responsible for the theft of flowers in the Second District was arrested on Friday, May 6, 2016. This was an example of the community and law enforcement officers sharing information and being on the lookout for the alleged suspect.


A few days ago, emails were sent to the community regarding a person who for years had stolen flowers from private yards and on public space. On Friday, May 6th, 2016, around the evening hours, a Georgetown Resident observed the individual in the Glover Park area and called the police dispatcher. Members of the Second District and Uniform Secret Services Division responded to the location and arrested the flower man for an outstanding warrant. Since this is an ongoing investigation there will be no other details provided at this time. (more…)

“Our efforts in the 900 block of G St., N.W. are really making a difference and I wanted to take a moment and give the community a brief update on our progress.

I want to thank our community members that have assisting MPD with information on these criminals; Continued assistance and support from our community is essential in this type of problem.

“Dear PoPville,

About 6 pm, I was walking up 11th Street NW. At Girard Street, I witnessed a multi-car accident (at least four moving vehicles involved, some parked cars hit, a biker nearly hit, etc.) This was kind of scary, especially because one of the vehicle’s airbags deployed, a woman got out of that vehicle and was yelling, “please come help, I have baby and my daughter inside, please help [add understandable panic here].” (more…)
