“Dear PoPville,

Someone stuck some fire starters into our car wheel Sunday morning and set our car on fire. I saw that you had some posts about car arson in DC, do you know of recent cases? It’s pretty scary and we want to know if it’s part of a recent pattern. Someone mentioned that there were some cases of car arson in Logan this summer.

Since the incident, we heard from others living in the area that there’s been a string of car arsons in the shaw/truxton circle/logan region over the last few months. People have been helpful in updating the fire detectives working on their case. I’m sure the detectives will connect the dots, but I’m trying to proactively see if there are other similar incidents in the area.”
