Dear PoP – Package Thief in Adams Morgan?

“Dear PoP,

Our building has been experiencing a case of “disappearing packages” and I’m wondering if any others are too. I’m on the 1800 block of Calvert, NW.

I’ve talked to building management, flagged it for UPS etc… I just was curious if this is a neighborhood package thief, or just a mean resident in my building.”

Unfortunately package thieves plague DC’s neighborhoods in what seems like a cyclical manner. We’ve seen/heard of package thieves in parts of Columbia Heights, Shaw, H St, NE, Petworth and I’m sure in other neighborhoods as well. To counter the problem many have their packages dropped off at work, with neighbors or at post offices.

For obvious reasons this behavior usually picks up around Christmas but, recently, has anyone else noted an uptick in package thefts?
