From MPD:

On Monday,, April 4, a little after 3 pm, 5D officers were dispatched to a burglar alarm in the 1900 block of 2nd ST., NW. As officers went to the rear, a man riding a bike and carrying a book bag fled from the rear of the house. Officers caught him hiding behind an air conditioner in a back yard in the 1900 block of 1st St., NW. The bike had been stolen from the home where the alarm had sounded, and items in the book bag (and the book bag itself) had been taken from the house on 2nd St. Entry had been made by smashing or kicking in a glass window in a basement level room.

I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the quick response and great work of our officers in catching a burglar in the Bloomingdale community. The man is 17 years old, and comes from the area near Minnesota Avenue and St St., SE.

I would also like to take the opportunity to remind residents that if they see or hear anyone or anything unusual in your neighborhood, particularly in the rear of houses and in alleys, that they should call 911 immediately so that we can come and check this out.

This is also a good coda to our discussion on security options since the alarm seemed to work well in this case.
