From WMATA:

“Amid ongoing pandemic-related budget constraints, Metro today announced upcoming changes to its lost and found procedures to reduce administrative costs so the agency can continue to prioritize its core mission: providing safe and reliable transportation for the region.

Beginning March 1, Metro’s lost and found department will work to reunite customers with lost wallets and electronics (such as phones, tablets, and laptops) only. All other items lost in the system will be disposed of, donated to charity, destroyed, or auctioned. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

It was lost somewhere on 1st street NW between big bear cafe and children’s National hospital when I was walking my dog. Would love to get it back! It was a gift when I was born from my grandpa.”

“Dear PoPville,

Last night someone ditched a large box of tools, small blue cooler, and a hand vacuum on the sidewalk in front of my house in Lamond-Riggs/Takoma. The tools look like they may belong to an electrician or a contractor that does something similar, and judging from the amount of things in there, I have a feeling they are very missed right now.

If anyone is able to help identify who might be missing these tools, I would love for them to be reunited!”

“Dear PoPville,

My name is Mathilde. Yesterday I lost my grandmother’s wedding ring. I am heartbroken because it was a memento from her: she passed 2 years ago.

The ring was on a chain that broke. I realized the chain had broken around 6:30pm in Brookland. The ring was not there anymore. I checked the 2 places I stopped at, and couldn’t find it, so I suspect the chain broke either when I walked from Rosslyn to Clarendon metro stations, on Wilson and Fairfax boulevards on Sunday 12/6 between about 3 and 5pm or when I took the metro from Brookland to Rosslyn (red line from Brookland CUA to Metro Center and then orange line from Metro Center to Rosslyn) from 2pm to 2:30 the same day. “

Should anyone have happened to found a ring yesterday at the listed locations please email me at [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP. Thank you.

“Dear PoPville,

I’m the manager at Martha’s Table Outfitters.

Earlier this week, one of our team members came across an old monogrammed photo wallet in the pocket of a man’s suit jacket that was donated to us. We would love to reunite the item with its owner as it appears to be a lovely family keepsake.

The outside of the wallet is monogrammed with the initials R.L.P. and the inside has two wedding photos and a portrait photo of a woman. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I live in SE DC and I lost my two rings on New Years Eve. A block away from the White House. These rings have an immense sentimental value, the wedding band (going on our 3 year anniversary in two months) and my emerald ring which is a gift from my mother, I received it since I was 8 years old. I know the chances of finding them are very slim but I’m holding on to a miracle. Thank you!”

Just a random/awesome tutorial I found while trying to understand what the hell pickleball is

“Dear PoPville,

Last night walking home from Showtime I stumbled upon some pickleball paddles seemingly left in the dirt by the curb on 1st NW and U/V street. Originally I thought lucky me because this is the fastest growing sport in America and all the rage recently, in addition to the equipment being kind of pricey. This morning after doing some research, I have come to the realization that these paddles were most likely not left on the street for a good home but almost certainly dropped, lost, or forgotten as their Amazon retail value is a combined $250.”

If these are yours email me at [email protected] I’ll connect with you OP so you can describe what they look like.

“Dear PoPville,

I found an engagement ring near the Columbia heights metro this morning around 9:15. I would love to get it back to its owner. If whoever is claiming it could send a picture or description of the ring to verify it belongs to them I’d like to return it.”

If you think it’s yours please email me at [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP. Thanks.

“Dear PoPville,

I came home after work on Friday and found this giant kiddie pool in our backyard. Assuming it was our basement neighbor’s, I sorta brushed it off until my husband noticed it and said, “No way…earlier today I remember I was deep into some document and swore I saw something big falling out of the corner of my eye [from the office on the 2nd floor]…but then forgot about it and moved on. Guess that actually did happen!” 😂😂😂 We checked with our neighbor and confirmed that it wasn’t his either. Read More
