“PSA: Theft in Dupont”

“Dear PoPville,

Not sure if anyone else has experienced in Dupont, but our apartment building (which just recently replaced the door) was broken into last night (Tuesday) between 11:10 and 11:22pm, and a thief not only made off with a bunch of packages across both hallways and a downstairs unit, but cut through bolted bikes in the building.

Noting it for the neighborhood because the thief (and his lookout, who sat outside in the alleyway and pretended to be a bystander) definitely cased our property – jimmied the front door, collected packages, cut through the bikes downstairs, and unloaded with the lookout – in about 15 minutes, so definitely keep your eyes out if you’re in the neighborhood!”
