“This is part rant, part psa”

“Dear PoPville,

I live in Kalorama triangle / adams morgan on mintwood pl. Two weeks ago my brand new road bike was stolen from mintwood, even with a u lock, and only out from 5-10pm. Yesterday my car was broken into, and they stole golf clubs set from trunk. Nothing was out in the car cabin to draw attention. And today I see what looks like the ol’ sign post removal trick and a bike missing that is always parked there.

This is part rant, part seeking of a psa: bring anything of value inside. Your “safe” address is not a shield, and your u lock will do nothing to a determined thief. Get rental insurance with a low deductible. Be vigilant and report suspicious activity. Consider taking the city up on vouchers for police-accessible home security cameras.”

Another reader reports a:

“rash of garage break ins at Logan Circle Tuesday night.”
