“Dear PoPville,

While my family was out on vacation (12/19-12/26) someone broke into our parked car on the northwest corner of monroe st and holmead place NW in columbia heights. Unfortunately, due to our relocation to that area, we had left some important documents in the trunk of our vehicle including birth certificate, passports, a handful of financial documents documents (though we had jewelry in the bag as well, I presume those will not be found). We are taking steps to protect ourselves by closing accounts; nevertheless, putting out this notice in the event a neighbor comes across delicate documents that may have been dumped in the trash in that area. We would love to recover the birth certificates in particular.

I can be reached either by email at [email protected] or phone at 202-854-1373.”

Ed. Note: Please, no need for judgement here. Obviously a mistake was made. This is known. If you happen to see any passports or birth certificates laying around or blowing down the street – just contact IK above. You can feel sanctimonious on reddit if you just can’t contain yourself. Thanks.
