From the MPD:
Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier announced today that hundreds of items of stolen property will be posted online for owners to view and retrieve. In January 2008, members of the Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPD) Burglary & Pawn Unit worked jointly with members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and discovered a large-scale fencing operation at Rosemar Liquors in the 1300 block of Good Hope Road SE. The stolen merchandise is valued at more than $200,000. In an effort to return the property to its rightful owners, the members of the MPD Burglary & Pawn Unit have coordinated with the DC Armory for owners to physically view the stolen property. The property will be displayed at the DC Armory from January 5, 2009 to January 7, 2009. The Armory is located at 2001 East Capital Street SE, Washington, DC 20003. The hours for the public viewing will be from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on January 5th and 6th, and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on January 7th.
According to Police Service Area (PSA) 208, there have been a number of home burglaries in the area recently in which the intruders gained access through the roof tops. This happened on our block last summer. The guy went through the adjacent property and jumped onto the deck of the top floor unit next door… then entered the top floor apartment. The young woman in the top-floor apartment was home, but not hurt, fortunately. It’s pretty easy for a burglar to go up a fire escape to your roof top or to somehow gain access to your building from a neighboring building. (more…)
