A reader spots in Friendship Heights:
“Awesome tag, but is it street legal? The front numbers matched the numbers on the back plate – it was the regular DC flag tag. Love that it’s a euro-style tag on a decidedly un-European car!”

From MPD Sunday:
“This morning at approximately 7:30am, a resident in the 3900 block of Ingomar St., NW, reported that while within her residence she heard the rear gate to her backyard open. Curious to see who it may be she peered out the window of the rear door. Immediately, she did not recognize the subject approaching and hastily attempted to lock the back door. However, she did not get the door secured before the suspect grabbed the door handle. A brief struggle ensued while the victim attempted to keep the door closed. The victim screamed for assistance causing the suspect to flee into a waiting vehicle in the alley making good his escape.
The suspect in this case is described as a black male, 5’4” to 5’7” in height with a slim build. The suspect had shoulder length cornrows wearing a mask. He was dressed in all dark clothing. The suspect was observed fleeing in what was described as a tan or silver, Toyota Rav 4. The vehicle was last observed in the area of Military Rd and Nevada Ave.
Anyone with information concerning this offense is asked to contact the Second District Detectives Office on 202-730-1903, or our Command Information Center on 202-727-9099. Additionally, please report any suspicious activity by dialing 911.”
From the New Hill East listserv:
“I just wanted to let you all know that my house [1500 block of East Capitol St, NE] was broken into at 6:15 am this morning [Saturday]. They used a crowbar to get into the house through my back door facing the alley. When they heard I was awake, they took a couple of things from the kitchen and ran out of the house. “
