From the United States Capitol Police:

“Two men who are accused of being involved in a series of armed carjackings across the Washington, DC area are facing felony charges because of the work of several United States Capitol Police (USCP) officers.

Just before 5:00 p.m. last night, a USCP patrol officer spotted a stolen Mercedes C-Class driving eastbound, near the U.S. Capitol, on Independence Avenue, SE.

According to law enforcement reports, the driver and the passenger were believed to be armed and dangerous and wanted for open cases across the region.

When officers attempted to stop the stolen Mercedes, the sedan sped away. The car blew through stop signs and red lights. It even went the wrong way down a one-way street and clipped a car before it crashed into parked cars near 12th Street and Independence, SE, where the stolen car stopped.

The officers spotted a gun near the driver and stopped the driver from reaching for it.

The officers recovered a 9mm “ghost gun,” which had a high capacity feeding device that is capable of holding 31 rounds. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Someone parked in front of no-parking signs for so long that they actually repaved *around* the car!

What surprises me the most is that the city (or the construction contractors doing the work) never had the car towed, even though it’s been easily a week or more.

Does anyone know what’s happening with all the road/construction work around the neighborhood the last 6 months or so? I saw one sign on 4th St SE saying water line replacement, but none of the other streets have signs, and have heard various rumors.”

“Dear PoPville,

Can you help me find anyone who may have info about my mother in laws hit and run which happened, Saturday (7/23), around noon. We’re hoping to find someone that saw the vehicle or would have doorbell cam footage of the car going past their house.

She was walking through the intersection at North Carolina and 8th St SE when someone ran a red light, hit her, and sped off. It happened around 11:45am-12pm. Read More
