“Does anyone know if the city or WMATA goes around and clears out these areas?”

“Dear PoPville,

There has been a homeless man living in a bus stop near our house (in Brookland). He’s been there for quite some time (weeks if not a month or more). With the weather turning really cold this week, I went to Walmart and bought him some warm clothes, gloves and a few other things. I gave them to him two nights ago (in a small rolling backpack/suitcase so he could travel with it). He was there this morning when I passed the stop, but this afternoon, he was gone, along with all of his stuff (blankets, etc). The area had been completely cleared out. Does anyone know if the city or WMATA goes around and clears out these areas? I’m afraid that he left for the day and someone came through and took/threw away all of his stuff. Seems unlikely that he packed up all of his things (after weeks) and moved somewhere else.”
