“Consistent Car Breaks Ins on Georgia Ave”

“Dear PoPville,

Over the last month or so on my walk home from the Petworth metro I’ve seen at least 8 instances of cars with their back windows broken into. Every time these cars have been parked on the 3600 block of Georgia Ave directly next to the CVS (across from Fisherman of Men Church) in that stretch of 8-10 parking spaces before you hit Princeton Place. I have never seen it happen before this and I think some of the times it’s happening in broad daylight which is crazy to me considering how busy the street is.

I had my car window smashed in a couple years ago despite there being nothing of value in the car to steal and it was such a bummer, so I wish I could warn these people before they decide to park in these spots! Obviously people will continue to park there, but at least they know there’s a risk involved. Can CVS post notices on their side wall warning that there’s been a string of break-ins in those spots? Considering that that CVS is always a mess, I’m less than optimistic that they’d do anything about it; but I’d just hate to sit idly by as it happens to more people. Is there anything that we can do?”
