Dear PoPville – Am I Naive to think I could leave a Stroller without it Getting Stolen?

“Dear PoPville,

I have a horrible story that should go out as another FYI to people. I live in a small condo building near U Street and we have a small, but gated, front lawn. Recently two of us in the building gave birth, making it now 3 kids in our 6 unit building, and we began leaving our strollers outside of the building, inside the gate and right next the front steps (as our other neighbor with a 3 year old has been doing for years). Well, this morning (sometime between 10am and 11:30am) as I was sitting in my living room with my 4.5 month old, my neighbor’s stroller got stolen from our front patio, just feet from my front door!

Am I being naive to think no one would take a stroller? I just think this is awful and I hope it’s a lone incident and not another thing we have to watch for in this area.”
