“Dear PoPville,

We can only offer $1,000 but we hope to raise awareness that dog theft is a reality and anyone that buys a dog without papers may very well be buying a stolen dog.”

Please continue to keep an eye out for Lexington. IF FOUND please report here: http://www.petlink.net/us, call: 1-877-PETLINK (1-877-738-5465) or email: [email protected]

“Dear PoPville,

After getting gas yesterday at about 6:45pm at the Sunoco at Harvard and Sherman, I was approached by a middle-aged black man wearing dark blue scrubs. He asked me if I knew where he could find a church that was open nearby, and said he wasn’t very familiar with the area but lived close by on Fairmont, having moved here from Texas in April. He began telling me he has a sick mother, he retired to be her caregiver, and she had been in the hospital yesterday. He said he needed $17.12 to pick up her prescription at CVS, but he didn’t get paid until this Friday, and asked if I could help.

95% sure scam, wondering if other folks have encountered him.”

mushrooms
3400 Georgia Ave, NW

Well this is wild. And pretty potentially awesome. Post’s Express reports:

“…on June 12, Curtis, 30, is opening a second, much larger production facility in D.C.’s Park View neighborhood to grow more mushrooms as well as microgreens.

The new, 7,200-square-foot space at 3400 Georgia Avenue — dubbed The Perch — will allow Curtis to keep up with the demand for mushrooms. The space will also be used for classes on mushroom growing, and Curtis will make the building available to the community for event rentals (a clothing swap is already planned).”

A reader passes on – keep your eyes peeled for it:

“HELP!!!! HELP!!!! HELP!!!! I am a 20 year retired veteran and a triple organ transplant recipient (a liver and 2 kidneys). While I was parked and removing items from the back area of my moving truck parked at the corner of Georgia Avenue, NW, and Harvard Street, NW, someone went into the passenger cab of the my vehicle, an Isuzu Box Truck, and stole a BLACK BACK PACK AND A SAMSUNG 6 CELL PHONE. ** REWARD** This happened in a matter of 10 seconds. The back pack contained EVERYTHING that is important to me, including my Organ Transplant medication, pain medication, a book that I am writing about my transplant experiences over the last two years (the name of the book is FINDING MY MIND), folders with Dr. Apple emblems on the front, keys to everything I own, critical medical information needed, family photos that cannot be replaced, and a host of other very important items. Although these items are not important for anyone else, they are a part of my life. My hope is that someone will take the valuables and discard the back pack as trash. If found, I beg of you, please call 202-680-4551. There is a REWARD for the return of the back pack and/or the cell phone. NO QUESTIONS ASKED. ***REWARD***

My cell phone contained pictures from my transplants, pictures of my father who has passed on, and a host of other things that can never be replaced and is not useful to anyone else but me.

If you have any information pertaining to this theft and it leads to the arrest and conviction of the thief, a larger reward will be given. This is separate of the*** REWARD*** above.

I do know one thing, the devil still creates people who don’t realize, nor do they care about how their actions affects other people lives. GOD loves you, too. And we are going to pray for all of you!!!!!
***REWARD***REWARD***REWARD***REWARD***REWARD***REWARD***REWARD

Thank you for any help you can give me.

“Dear PoPville-

I’m wondering whether you know anything about the funny little building at 640 Columbia Rd NW. I pass this every day and I’m always curious. Looks like it may be some sort of garage-to-apartment conversion? Is that sort of thing legal in DC? Attaching a photo from Google Maps.”

Lex

“Dear PoPville,

On Thursday, May 12th, we spoke to a neighbor who witnessed Lexington walking alone down the 700 block of Kenyon St NW. This would have occurred roughly 5 minutes after she escaped from our backyard. The neighbor followed Lex down the road to investigate and witnessed a woman in a car pull-up beside Lexington, exit her car, pick up Lexington, get back into her car and drive off. This occurred near the drop-off area in front of Chavez Prep. Thus, we are convinced Lex was dognapped as she had tags with our phone # and a microchip, so the woman could have called us or brought Lexington to a vet or shelter to be identified.

Later on Thursday, a certified search and rescue dog tracked Lexington’s scent in the area that the neighbor saw her abducted, though she had not been on a walk on that street for a week. (more…)
