“Dear PoPville,

I need to give MPD props for an arrest made over the weekend for my break-in that you folks reported on a few months ago:

“Yesterday, just before 12:30 PM, thieves kicked in our front door. Luckily our alarm went off quickly, scaring them off before they took too much and alerting us and MPD quickly. Our family and pets are ok, but they made off with some laptops and one of our cars (keys were on the kitchen counter…) – I love that little car.”

During the investigation, police found a finger print which lead them to issuing an arrest warrant early in December and an arrest over the weekend. I got a call on Monday from the Detective working our case and am looking forward to hearing from the US Attorney this week.

According to the Detective, this particular criminal has been involved in about 10 different break-ins around the neighborhood. He’s currently being held at DC jail on a half-dozen burglary charges and will spend New Years as a guest of the DC justice system.

Well done to the responding officers, our detectives who investigated the case, and ESPECIALLY the officer who took the prints!”

    Not New Years! Anyone want to bet he commits another crime before he’s back in court for the burglaries?

      Seriously though – props to the cops/detectives! Our court system, on the other hand…

    Do we know what neighborhood this was in? (Or did I somehow miss it when reading the post?)

      There’s a link to the original post that has all the details. Decatur Street near Sherman Circle.

    Wow! that’s great! Our house (just on the other side of Sherman circle) was also burglarized in early November. I hope that the guy they caught is the same guy that broke into our place!
