ZIP YOUR BAGS – Pick Pocketed at Dinner at Taco Bamba 777 Eye Street NW
Last night I met a friend at Taco Bamba at 6:15pm, by 730ish I could not find my wallet to pay for my dinner, and a subsequent check of my accounts showed all my credit cards purchased Metrocards at the Mount Vernon Metro stop around 6:28pm at the values of $103 and $104.
My bag was a tote with no zipper – warning to all ladies – ONLY use a bag that you can zip and zip it closed in public.
DC Police took the report and want to claim it as as “lost property” since I did not see someone take it despite knowing I had my wallet moments earlier and went from work a few blocks away. (more…)
