“Hoping that this fob was indeed stolen, as the alternative is pretty awful to think about.”


“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to reach out to you about a particularly alarming package theft in our condo building in Adams Morgan. I have written to you before about package thefts, but this is a new low even for our building.

A couple weeks ago on a Wednesday night around 9:30 PM, someone gained access to our condo building in Adams Morgan and proceeded to steal a pretty expensive package. Through our security footage, we were able to check the video, screenshot the intruder, track the fob, and determine how she got access. Turns out, the fob that she used to gain access is the fob we assigned to the USPS mail person who services our building. We are uncertain whether the fob was actually stolen, or given to someone to access the building. This person knew exactly what she was looking for,

walking in, doing a round to check the different areas in the front where we keep packages, grabbing the package available, putting it in her large bag, and walking right back out. Even scarier, there were a handful of residents coming and going in the minutes surrounding this theft. We have reached out to USPS and filed a case with their fraud department and will file a police report. Hoping that this fob was indeed stolen, as the alternative is pretty awful to think about.”
