Suspicious Package, Bank Robbery and Bomb Threat in Chinatown?

7th and I St, NW

MPD tweeted about an hour ago:

“Suspicious Package @ 9th & G St NW, Street closure from 900-1000 blk of G St NW. Avoid the area.”

A reader hears that in addition:

“There was a bank robbery at TD Bank (on 7th) and a bomb scare in tech world. (This is all second hand info – but just passing along). As an FYI, the security guards and police are still keeping that section of 7th street closed off and no one seems to be able to walk through techworld plaza (7th & K St NW).”

  • That TD Bank was also robbed early afternoon the Saturday before Thanksgiving…..tons of people around….scary stuff.

    Does anyone actually get away with bank robbery anymore? I am suprised people are still dumb enough to do it.

    Sure, you can get out of the bank, but with all the surveillance, witneses etc, aren’t most caught in short order?

    • You’d think so but when it takes the cops awhile to show up and someone wears a mask….it’s harder to take care of things. I walked by with my dog shortly after the robbery and a few cops were inside asking questions and two were standing outside the door. There was no one in custody. I’ve called the cops a few times about suspicious people/things in the neighborhood and they never show. I partially blame the dispatchers who hang up on me multiple times when I dial 911 and then don’t even know where the intersection of Mass Ave NW and 6th St NW are even though there is a police station two blocks away – they should be better trained. Not impressed.
