“MPD needs your help to find this criminal mastermind.”

@SafeDC [Kevin Donahue, Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice] tweets:

“MPD needs your help to find this criminal mastermind. Call in tips to 202-727-9099 or text them to MPD at 50411.”

From MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department seeks the public’s assistance in identifying and locating two persons of interest in reference to an Armed Robbery (Gun) incident which occurred in the 3000 block of 13th Street, NW, on Tuesday, November 24, 2015 at approximately 11:30 AM. The subjects were captured by nearby surveillance cameras.”

  • Looks like the guy from Minecraft.

  • Seriously? Why do people have useless security cameras? This is right behind my house, so I’d like to know who to keep an eye out for, especially since the guys probably are attached in one way or another to the housing project there.

      Where’s your camera footage?

      Camera is pretty easy. Storing hours upon hours of HD quality video gets price though.

      • Shaw Neighbor

        It’s not that pricey to buy an external hard drive with 5TB of storage – costs about $100-130. That’s plenty of room to store higher quality HD footage. Outdoor HD cameras are about $150 each. Plus $500 to wire it all. Not a small investment, but given what real estate values are in places like Columbia Heights right now, seems like something that a home buyer could afford to protect his/her investment. Didn’t the Mayor also announce that they would be issuing mini-grants to home owners to cover the cost of putting cameras in public space areas?

    • Clearly, run-on sentences are one of the many things you know nothing about.

  • please

    Zoom in. Now… enhance.

    Has anybody else seen these two (one of which is related to Sex Abuse/Robbery-F&V, 200 b/o 8th St, SE)?

    Looks like the same guy/jacket, no?

    I’m not sure I get the “mastermind” reference–I’m guessing it’s tongue-in-cheek, but don’t see how it applies to this one. But this mastermind, however, I think you’ll appreciate:

      That’s actually the “mastermind” reference in the original tweet from the Deputy Mayor. Not sure why PoPville got the tweet & YouTube videos mixed up.

        Oh, that makes more sense, ‘mouse.
