Adams Morgan: Daytime Commercial Robberies


For our neighbors to the north in Adams Morgan, from MPD’s 3rd District listserv on Yahoo! Groups… this is from 3D Commander George Kucik:

Since March 6, 2009, there have been 3 commercial robberies in the 1700 block of Columbia Road, NW, during the daytime hours. (There were initial reports of a 4th robbery at the Crumbs and Coffee shop , however that was determined not to have been a robbery.) Two of the cases involved a lone suspect and one involved 3 gunmen. I have deployed footbeat and bicycle officers to Columbia Road. In addition, I have reached out to our Special Operations Division to increase traffic enforcement in the area. This will add visibility and deter the criminal element from coming to the area.
