“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…)

From MPD:

“On May 7, 2016, shortly after midnight, Fourth District officers responded to the 400 block of Park Road, NW, for a shooting inside of a residence.

An adult male victim was located on the sidewalk suffering from serious facial and head injuries. An investigation revealed that the victim had been assaulted during a party inside the residence. The victim was taken to a local area hospital for treatment of his injuries. It was also determined that an unknown suspect had fired a handgun inside of the location, causing all of the individuals in the house to flee. At this time, it does not appear that anyone was struck by the gunshots.

The Fourth District is asking anyone with information about these offenses to contact the MPD Command Information Center at 202-727-9099. Thank you.”

“Dear PoPville,

I witnessed a rather disturbing event yesterday evening (April 28) on the 700 block of Morton Street NW. From inside the house I was at, I heard multiple gut wrenching howls seeming to come from a dog. I go outside and notice on the sidewalk at the middle of the block a man with two pit bulls – one of which appeared to be hanging from a tree. The dog was howling in pain and I couldn’t really see what was going on but the noises the dog made were definitely ones of pain. I proceeded to take a small video clip from afar (did not want to approach this man and the pit bulls). A screen shot is attached (grainy- but you can see the dog standing/hanging upright on the right). I spoke with two others that passed by and witnessed this going on and apparently the owner of the dog was teaching the dog to “prune the branches of the tree”. I have no idea what the hell that means, but the dog was hanging from a tree branch from his mouth and again making just the most terrible noises. (more…)
