A reader reports:

“unfortunately, you can add another crime to this mini-wave. My house near 8th and T NW was broken into last Thursday, just after I left for work. Intruder(s) broke in through my kitchen window, which faces the back alley. They stole a laptop, two iPads, my TV, a bunch of cash and, yes, my car keys (off my kitchen counter) and my car, which was parked in the alley behind the house. I’m offering $1,000 for any information that leads to the recovery of the car, a 2003 black Jeep Liberty with DC tags EN0349. Even more, I’d like to see these guys apprehended. Would urge everybody in north Shaw to be extra cautious.

Please contact 202/ 441-2909 with any info.”
