Looks like Capitol Food Mart on North Cap in Bloomingdale has been shuttered for health code violations. No surprise there, but the real loss is that they are an approved UPS Access Point (a package hold location), and there are definitely packages locked inside (including mine!). I don’t know when this happened, or how long they’ll be closed for, but I called UPS to alert them and to see what they could do about the packages stuck inside.”

“This evening [Thursday] at approximately 6:30 pm in the unit block of Florida Avenue NW, three subjects occupying a gold Ford Explorer accosted several citizens at gunpoint as they exited an establishment in the block. The victims were robbed of their personal possessions, and the suspects fled the scene in the vehicle.
Moments later the Office of Unified Communications dispatcher broadcast the radio run for the robbery, including a look-out for the suspect vehicle.
Fifth District officers immediately flooded the area while canvassing for the victims and suspects. Within moments, one of the officers spotted the suspect vehicle and began coordination with other officers in the area to conduct a felony vehicle stop. While doing so, the suspects became aware of the increasing MPD presence, and the suspects fled in the vehicle to an alley in the 200 block of Morgan St NW. The suspects bailed out of the vehicle and fled on foot. Despite two of the suspects being armed with guns, the officers selflessly gave chase on foot. All three suspects were apprehended without injury to the officers or the suspects. (more…)
The security enhancements promised below will be helpful only if actually implemented and done so with a sense of urgency. I live at the corner of Flagler and Adams Streets, NW. Last night, two nights following a homicide a half block south of the Adams/Flagler DC Water construction staging area and following the promises made below, I noticed that the east-side sidewalk on the 2200 block of Flagler Place is still almost completely dark as one walks north towards Adams Street –see attached photo. Additionally, the sidewalk dead-ends due to DC Water project fences that continue to block access to Adams Street. This morning, I walked down the stretch and could see that the light fixture on top of the DC Water fence is missing lightbulbs –see attached photo. It’s beyond my comprehension that such a situation would exist given what has happened in this area in recent days. I noticed this fixture missing lightbulbs only because it is near my house. I suspect that if I walked the perimeter of each of the three DC Water construction staging areas, there would be other fixtures in similar condition. I ask that DC Water increase the sense of urgency given the promises made below.” (more…)
