Mount Pleasant Crime Query:

“Dear PoPville,

Does anyone know what happened at the Park Pleasant Apartments (3339 Mt Pleasant Street NW) on Tuesday (1/8)? We walked by that night and there were police cars, a police van, and we could see into one of the apartments that there were multiple police officers inside it and at least one person inside it in a white disposable coverall doing something (gathering evidence?).”
