Someone is cutting locks at the Washington Sports Club in Columbia Heights

14th and Irving St, NW

Columbia Heights Washington Sports Club cannot catch a break lately.

“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to let people know what happened to me at the Washington Sports Club in Columbia Heights so they can take extra precautions. Someone is cutting locks and stealing the content of the locker, at least in the men’s locker room. This just happened to me.

When I finished a 30 minute workout, I came back to the men’s locker room only to find my lock gone and all my cash, driver license, and 3 credit cards stolen. I immediately started receiving calls from my credit cards about large Best Buy purchases. WSC management said the same thing happened a few weeks prior to my robbery. I do not know if WSC management plans on informing members of these recent events. I strongly encourage WSC members to use the most heavy duty lock you can find and do not leave anything of value out of your sight. I guess my lock was easier to cut than others. I always thought my belongings would be safe so long as I kept them locked. Wrong.”
