“Dear PoPville,

I guess it’s a good PSA more than anything…

Last Thursday I was one of several people robbed at the Shell Station at 12th and Otis St NE in Brookland. I unlocked my car to switch credit cards, since the one I was planning on using was not able to be read. Unbeknownst to me, a kid had snuck around my passenger side and opened the door, such that it was not able to be locked again. When I finished pumping gas and went to get in, the kid was inside my car, with my purse in his hands, rifling through other things in the car to take. In addition to my purse, he got my car/house keys, iPhone and my wallet with my ID containing my address. I stupidly chased the kid but he got into a waiting black, Mercedes crossover with MD temp tags and they sped north on 12th St NE. About 10 minutes after the theft, I started getting fraud calls to my Apple watch from the Walmart on Riggs Road. They were able to make about $4000 in purchases between all of my cards in my wallet.
