“The attempted plant murders (a phrase I never thought I would write) have each occurred at around 5:30 a.m.”


“Dear PoPville,

I’m a resident on Bates St. NW, a quiet one-way street between P St. and Q St. NW, and 1st St. and 3rd St. NW (in Truxton Circle). This week, my neighbor’s small front garden has been repeatedly vandalized by the same individual, who has ripped out the same plant twice and tossed it onto the sidewalk. The attempted plant murders (a phrase I never thought I would write) have each occurred at around 5:30 a.m., one on Tuesday and one this morning (Friday).

While I get that this is low-level stuff, the fact that someone would go out of their way to repeatedly harm a random neighbor’s plants bothers me immensely. My neighbors are a friendly, normal, low-key couple (it’s a normal house, regular garden, etc.), and they work hard to maintain this little garden in part because it makes our community a better place. They don’t deserve to be repeatedly targeted or have their property vandalized, and I’d appreciate any help that folks could provide in identifying this person and stopping these incidents.”


“This is unbelievable, but the same guy came back early this morning (Sunday) and ripped out the same plant from my neighbors front garden – it’s the third time in less than a week! It’s insane, and it needs to stop. I hope someone recognizes him.”
