From Council Members to regular folks – sadly, you just gotta stop doing this. More reports from MPD last night:

“This evening at approximately 6:30 pm, a victim left their car running in the 1000 block of First Street SE while picking up food. An unknown suspect entered their vehicle and fled in an unknown direction.

The First District has seen an elevated level of car thefts–many of which involve cars that are left running or keys that are left in cars. Please always be aware of your surroundings and ensure that you turn off and lock your car even if only getting out for a moment.”

and in the 100 Block of M Street SE:

“This afternoon at approximately 4:55 pm, a victim left their car running while getting out to use an ATM. An unknown suspect entered their vehicle and fled in an unknown direction.”

“Dear PoPville,

There’s a big pile of stolen bikes sitting on a public sidewalk just off Mt. Olivet Road in Trinidad/Ivy City. They aren’t chained to anyone’s property – they’re just sitting along an empty stretch of sidewalk and the pile keeps getting bigger. This has been going on for months. My neighbors and I keep calling 311, our councilmember, and MPD to ask them to do something – unfortunately the District doesn’t really care about much that goes on around here and has ignored all of our requests. How can we get these bikes out of here, and maybe back to the people they belong to, or at least someone who needs them?
