Stolen 1970s-era Yellow Peugeot Bike

I had my yellow Peugeot bicycle stolen this afternoon. It was parked in an alley near P and Marion St.

Its a shot in the dark, but I’d appreciate any info/tips regarding its whereabouts.

Attached is a picture of me and my Peugeot in happier times.

Marie Reed Elementary School After School Program Fundraiser

The Marie Reed Elementary School PTA has an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for science classes for our first and second grade after care program.

The beauty of Indiegogo is that a lot of small contributions add up quickly, so we would be grateful for any donation you can give us.

So far, our most effective strategy has been sharing on social media, so, if you can, please share on Facebook or Twitter.

Bogus ticket from DPW

I just got a ticket from DPW for putting out my trash bins on the wrong day.

The trash bins go in the alley, so they’re not in anyone’s way, and for as long as I can remember everyone in the alley has had bins out seven days a week. The DPW photo of my bins even shows the alley full of other bins. So I would contend that if I got a ticket they should have ticketed everyone, and further, if they wanted to start enforcing this rule after so many years of nonenforcement they should have sent out notices.

I think I have a strong case for desuetude ( — laws made unenforceable due to a long habit of nonenforcement). Does anyone have any experiences fighting tickets like these?

Schwinn Bike Found

I found a Schwinn Mountain bike in Petworth, around about a block from the metro discarded in an alley. I left it for awhile thinking maybe someone just stopped for a bit but it was moved to the sidewalk and placed upside down. Pretty sure it was stolen or maybe taken for a joy ride. The tires are flat and I didn’t see if it rode well (gears working, etc) but the frame is in good condition.

Dog found in Riggs Park

My husband and I were walking our dog on Saturday and came across this white and gray dog with no collar on Oglethorpe St. NE between Riggs Rd. and 6th St. NE. The dog appears to be a pit bull or pitty mix and quite young- I would guess around 1 year old.

He was extremely friendly and wanted to play with our dog, and followed us to Nicholson St NE (near Riggs Rd), where we found a police officer who took the dog.

He was very clean, not scared and really friendly, so I’m assuming he is not a stray. I hope this helps someone find their sweet pup.

lost cat?

hi guys,

not sure if someone already reported this but I saw this cat right near Glenn’s market in DuPont that looked lost … it has a blue tag you can kind of see in the pic below but didn’t get close enough to read the full tag!

Hope someone will find this sweetie soon.

Bike stolen on downtown sidewalk, broad daylight

Hi, my friend’s bike was stolen today outside of her office on M and 20th downtown. She just moved to DC for an unpaid internship as a graduate student and can’t afford to replace it, so I was hoping the PoP community might help and keep an eye out for it–especially if it shows up online.

Frankly, I’m shocked that someone could have gotten away with clipping a bike lock in such a high traffic area … the Golden Triangle BID should be concerned about this.

FOUND: Macbook

Some poor sap put his computer on the top of his car and drove off. It flew of his car at the intersection of Mass and 6th NW. I picked it up – if you lost your Macbook, let me know! It covered with stickers, in a black case, and had a land survey in the case as well.
