“I accidentally left the keys to my car in the car door last Friday evening and someone stole my car (Corner and 3rd and T St NE). I caught it on my security camera, and from the footage it looks like my neighbor stole my car! I filed a police report and provided the footage to the police, but they don’t seem to care about the video. What good is the security footage if the police won’t act on it?? Seems like a waste of money since the city paid me $400 for system. (more…)

On the Eckington side:
I am trying to find witnesses to an incident from Dec. 11, 2015, at about 8:20 a.m. when a dump truck struck a pedestrian in the crosswalk at the intersection of Eckington Pl. and Q St. NE, right by the Gale Apartments. The pedestrian, a nice young lady who lived nearby, was seriously hurt and spent over a year recovering. A number of people came to help her, including someone named Shelly and someone named Natalie, but she was in no state to get their full names or contact information, which we would like to try and find. I was hoping one of your readers might have seen the incident or the aftermath and would be willing to get in touch to help her out. I am attaching a photograph of the scene in case it helps. I can be emailed at [email protected] if anyone has any information.”
