Ed. Note: There had been a string of recent burglaries in Adams Morgan/Lanier Heights recently.
“At approximately 12:45 today [Monday], members of the Third District responded to the 1900 block of Calvert Street NW in reference to a reported burglary. A witness provided the officers a lookout for 2 subjects that were seen exiting a residence. After canvassing the area, 2 subjects were located and detained pending investigation. During this time, a second call was received for another burglary in the 1800 block of Calvert Street NW. Through the investigation it was determined that the subjects stopped were in possession of property that had been stolen from the second location. 2 Adult males were placed under arrest for Burglary in the Second Degree.
Third District detectives are working on this case to determine if these subjects are responsible for any of the recent burglaries that have been committed in the PSA 303 area. This arrest would not have been possible without the assistance of the alert witness and the quick response of the officers.”
