1648 North Capitol Street, NW at R Street

From an email:

“As you covered on the site, the Pub & The People was broken into earlier this week, likely by a radical faction of the teetotaller party, and had most of their tools stolen, which could considerably delay their opening. The folks behind the Pub have been furiously welding, carpentering, tiling, and building this bar with their bare hands in an effort to open it’s doors to the citizens of DC. Making matters worse, due to the bar’s status as an “active construction site,” it was unable to have the stolen property reimbursed by insurance. So we think the fastest, most effective way to get the boys back to work would be to raise funds to get rudimentary tools so P&P can open on time. We’ve set up a Booster account to help the Pub get back on track, and would appreciate any help in achieving our goal of raising $3,000.”

Ed. Note: They’re over half way towards their goal – nice!

The Pub and the People was broken into sometime between 11pm last night and 8am this morning. Most of our tools were stolen which is going to slow our opening down considerably. We are asking anyone who may have seen something to contact Officer Melissa Maroney case # 037089 at 202.698.0150

Props to David F and jaddams who sculpted this, er uh, sculpture in Bloomingdale. It looks huge and must’ve taken quite an effort to build – so I’m gonna call it a bird and say well done! Although, maybe it’s a garden gnome?

“First Degree Burglary
2100 – 2199 BLOCK OF 1ST STREET NW
03/03/2015 10:14

The Complainant reports as she walking home, she observed an unknown male following her. As she entered her basement apartment she locked her doors behind her. Shortly thereafter she heard a crashing noise and went to investigate and found the unknown male standing in her apartment. Without provocation the unknown male grabbed at her and asked her for money. As the Complainant screamed to occupants upstairs, she was struck about the face with a wooden object and kicked about the body. Hearing the commotion, the occupants in the above apartment decended into the basement apartment, causing the unknown male to exit the apartment without obtaining anything. An area canvass by MPD was conducted without success. Look-out for a Black Male, dark complexioned, 5’8 in height, wearing a green coat, blue jeans, red hats and carrying a wooden stick.

Anyone with information in connection to this offense can anonymously call 202) 727-9099.”

“Dear PoPville,

I have been trying unsuccessfully to get a piece of machinery removed from my street for a few weeks. This is on 100 block of V Street, NW in Bloomingdale, a street that already has half of its parking gobbled up by the water project. The machine is from a contractor that is renovating a house, it’s not part of the water project. I’m not quite sure how this machine is helpful in a home renovation to begin with, but I have seen the contractors move it in the morning so they can park their cars directly in front of the building they’re working on. I don’t think they’ve even been working on the house for the last week or two. There are and never have been “no parking” permits posted.”

Update: DPW tells OP that DCRA handles construction equipment that park without permits because this backhoe has no tag nor a vin number.”
