From MPD last night:

“Good evening, recently MPD members were in the vicinity of the 3000 block of 14th when they observed a subject steal a bicycle by using bolt cutters. MPD units quickly apprehended the subject without incident and recovered the bicycle. As a reminder, making your bicycle hard to steal and registering your bicycle with the MPD can help prevent this crime. Also, please report all bicycle thefts so that the MPD can keep abreast of theft patterns. Thank you.”

“Dear PoPville,

Last weekend there was a man walking around Columbia Heights asking for money so he could get to the hospital. He first asked me while I was on a bike at 13th x Park, then he asked me a second time 20 minutes later or so while I was walking around Tivoli Square. He was actually stopping cars and asking as well. I am not positive, but I believe I have seen this guy before several months ago doing the same around the Columbia Heights metro. I figured it was a scam so I didn’t give him anything. Did anyone else encounter this?”
