Reading the local crime reports on the MPD Second and Third District listservs is usually routine, especially after you’ve done it for a couple of years. But, on occassion something does jump out at you for any number of reasons. Here’s our pick from the previous week.

From MPD: “On Thursday, January 25, [sic] 2011, 10:55 pm a UCSA/PWID Marijuana offense occurred in the 1700 block of N St., N.W. (PSA 208) and was subsequently reported by the MPD. During a traffic stop resulting in an arrest a cyclist was found to be in possession of marijuana. He was charged accordingly. This is a closed case.”

The following is a list of robberies, assaults, stolen autos and burglaries in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area over the past week. Crimes are from police reports for Police Service Areas 208, 305 and 307.

** An arrest was made in the two January 28 robberies on the U Street corridor. From MPD’s Third District: “A lone subject committed two unarmed robberies near 9th and U Streets, Northwest.
