From MPD:

“On 3/15/2019, at approximately 10:00 PM, an adult female reported that she had just been carjacked by two (2) suspects, in the 1000 block of Mt. Olivet Road, NE. The complainant reported that one of the suspects produced a handgun, and ordered her out of her vehicle. The suspects then fled the scene in the complainant’s vehicle.

A short time later, at approximately 10:30 PM, members of the 5D Crime Suppression Team located the vehicle in the parking lot of the Circle 7, at 1211 Mt. Olivet Road, NE. The officers approached the vehicle, at which time the suspects fled in the vehicle, striking an officer who was out on foot. (more…)

OK beer geeks, buckle up. I got a few queries over the weekend asking about the giant line Saturday in front of the Bruery Store in Union Market. It turns out that the Other Half Brewing Co. had a can pop up event. The line was around the block (see above, thanks to Laura for sending.) Then this week, I started to get a steady flood of scuttlebutt from sources saying that they hear Other Half were planning on opening up a brewery here in D.C. Word is the location will be somewhere in Ivy City.

I had their Double Dry Hopped Mylar Bags at Boundary Stone last night and it was outstanding. This is very, very good news indeed. I rate this scuttlebutt accuracy at 97%. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I dropped of my car today at Auto Tech Service in Adams Morgan only to learn that they were abruptly closing down today and moving to another location in NE near Ivy City. They are an amazing auto repair shop and I’m sad to see them leave. I thought it would be worth sharing since many locals use their service.”

Ed. Note: Let’s take this opportunity to make a best mechanics in town list? Thanks!

From MPD:

“On yesterday’s date, June 25, 2018, members of the Fifth District Crime Suppression Team conducted a Search Warrant on the above address in connection with another Pop-Up Marijuana Party. The Warrant was successful in seizing over 10 pounds of Marijuana, hundreds of Marijuana edibles (some look exactly like Gummy Bears and other kids candies), illegal Marijuana oils, and over 20,000 dollars in cash. 23 Arrests were made, all were adults. Please see the below message from Commander FitzGerald regarding past Pop-Up Marijuana Parties.

I would like to address some sentiments I have received from the community in regards to these marijuana pop-up events. The events have contributed to violent crime in the Fifth District. (more…)
