“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday, watched two guys steal a neighbor’s scooter before sunset and with multiple people around and, in one case, literally walking by.

Watched for over five minutes while giving the 911 dispatcher a play by play as these guys somehow managed to a) free the scooter from a serious chain lock and b) start the scooter and ride off. Not owning a scooter myself I have no idea how either of these things happened.

So to my neighbor on Kalorama Road in Adams Morgan, I’m really sorry. Looked like a nice scooter and wanted you to know I tried to be helpful by calling and staying on the phone with 911. They didn’t dispatch the police until it was too late. To everyone else who owns a scooter, not sure what to say. These guys weren’t deterred by a big chain lock so good luck.”

Ed. Note: There had been a string of recent burglaries in Adams Morgan/Lanier Heights recently.

From MPD:

“At approximately 12:45 today [Monday], members of the Third District responded to the 1900 block of Calvert Street NW in reference to a reported burglary. A witness provided the officers a lookout for 2 subjects that were seen exiting a residence. After canvassing the area, 2 subjects were located and detained pending investigation. During this time, a second call was received for another burglary in the 1800 block of Calvert Street NW. Through the investigation it was determined that the subjects stopped were in possession of property that had been stolen from the second location. 2 Adult males were placed under arrest for Burglary in the Second Degree.

Third District detectives are working on this case to determine if these subjects are responsible for any of the recent burglaries that have been committed in the PSA 303 area. This arrest would not have been possible without the assistance of the alert witness and the quick response of the officers.”
