From MPD Tuesday night:

“Today members of the First District Crime Suppression Team were on patrol early in the day on the look-out for package thieves in the Capitol Hill-East area and observed several suspicious acts.

At approximately 1108 AM, one officer encountered two men that seemed to be working together in the 400 block of 11th Street NE. The officer saw the two men walking through the block appearing to look into cars and he set up nearby to observe them for actual criminal behavior beyond the merely suspicious.

One of the two men then walked up to the building at 410 11th Street NE and sit down beside a large package. When the man opened the package, the lookout noticed the officer and the men fled in different directions. The package that was opened was left behind.

When fleeing the man discarded a hedge trimmer that he had either just stolen or had been carrying to reduce the suspicious nature of his behavior approaching homes. He also discarded a backpack containing a large silver foil “Prepared Meal Service” package such as SunBasket, HelloFresh, or BlueApron might send. Officers were unable to determine from which home he had stolen that meal service delivery. (more…)

11th and Florida Ave, NW. Mike sent us the above at 8:02pm. I’ve never seen police tape close a road for fireworks.

“Dear PoPville,

I heard a LOT of gunshots (20-30) in rapid succession (or loud fireworks?) today at around 7:20pm from our home on Euclid and 12th. Seemed to come from south or southeast from us, and may have been a few blocks away (we’re on a hill so sound travels pretty far). Called it in but did not see anything posted on the MPD feed. Was wondering if others heard the same and know what was going on?

I received numerous messages last night like this one:

“Helicopters have been circling Columbia Heights/Petworth/Park View since last night. My wife heard it was due to a search for a missing person who was found, but they’re still circling. Anyone know what’s going on?”

MPD first reported:

“Fourth District Officers were searching for a missing person with the assistance of the MPD helicopter. The missing person was located”

Then:

“Officers of the Third Police District are searching for a prisoner who escaped from police custody. The suspect is described as an African American male, 5’10”, 155 pounds, dark complexion, wearing a white t-shirt, black pants, and dark shoes. The suspect was last seen running eastbound in the 600 block of Lamont Street, NW. He is wanted on drug, theft, and traffic charges.

Anyone with information regarding this escaped prisoner is asked to contact the Metropolitan Police Department’s Command Information Center at 202-727-9099.”
