A reader sends in the tip:

“Police were on scene of the Banneker Track around 630 AM because of a body found. They closed off part of the track and asked those up and running the course whether they had seen anything. Someone walking the track in the morning called it in. Police said they couldn’t tell how long he had been there.”

“On today’s date [Thursday], at approximately 16:00 hours, members of the 3rd District VICE Unit executed a District of Columbia Superior Court Search Warrant at a residence located within the 600 block of Harvard Street NW.

This enforcement stemmed from intelligence gathered and concerns from local citizens about suspected drug dealing.

As a result of the aforementioned Search Warrant, members of 3-D VICE recovered a loaded semi-automatic pistol, approximately 1.5 pounds of high grade marijuana, proceeds of illicit drug sales and a substantial amount of drug packaging materials meant for resale and street level distribution.

Two adults were arrested and charged with “Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute while Armed.”

Once again, I take this opportunity to thank our community and its great citizens for your pro-active approach to helping us keep your neighborhoods safe. And as always “IF YOU SEE SOMETHING…SAY SOMETHING”.
