Dear PoPville,

So, I just got a call from a police officer in Arlington saying they had my stolen debit card. This was news to me, because I had my card in my wallet. Long story short, my Wachovia card has just expired and Wells Fargo (which bought Wachovia) had sent me a new one. Except, I never got it.

According to the officer, the individual arrested had several debit cards on her, several from the Eckington Area, specifically T Street. So the thinking is that maybe she was plucking them out of the mail from our block. If someone is expecting a new card and you haven’t received it, it may have gotten caught up in this.

The officer on the case seemed diligent, but given that it is across state lines it may take a while to get the word out, so I just wanted to give people a heads up.
