“Dear PoPville,

Thank you for this post. I recently moved to Trinidad and really love this neighborhood. I live on a street where people watch out for each other.

The person shown in the pictures below was caught stealing on camera around halloween outside of my neighbor’s house. Then my neighbor saw him days later stealing across the street. The police arrested him after he was identified and they found packages in his backpack.

He was held for 17 days and then let back on the street. (more…)

Thanks to a reader for sending this “Doug the Scammer” update:

“He showed up to court, realized the Kapnos Kouzina witnesses were there (myself and a former colleage present the day of the robbery), then left the court room without appearing in front of the judge. There is currently a bench warrant status for him. So if anyone sees him in the city they should report his whereabouts immediately to authorities. Justice will have to live another day!”

A few recent emails:

“I’m missing a package that says delivered. I was home and sure the mailman put it at the wrong door. Can we remind neighbors this holiday season to have a heart. If it’s delivered a street over just throw it on the right porch. mine is only worth 23 bucks but it’s a hassle.”

“Columbia Heights / Mount Pleasant Package Thief

No matter how small, please report package thefts to the police. I caught this individual trying to gain access to our building after successfully stealing packages the previous night. He had the nerve to show up in the exact same clothing. The police said they couldn’t do anything because a previous report hadn’t been made. They said the can only arrest on a second-sighting.” (more…)
