A suspected package thief was caught on camera last week in the Logan Circle neighborhood.

In a video released by D.C. police earlier this morning, a man can be seen walking up to a home and retrieving a package from the doorstep. The man then sits down at a nearby table and waits for approximately 38 seconds before standing up and walking away with the package.

Police confirm a theft was reported at a residence on the 1200 block of S Street NW last Wednesday at approximately 4:24 p.m.

The city dog park under construction at 17th-S-New Hampshire NW seems to be almost ready. Today I watched them put down some very green material that is some sort of artificial turf (think AstroTurf). The workers unrolled the sheets-of-green and then stapled it down. There is even an artificial hill in the center of the park.

After delays due to the heavy May and June rains, a great deal of work has been done in the past week–although I didn’t see an opening date posted on the location today.

I have to ask… What will dog pee do to artificial turf? Will it be easy to pick up dog-doo? Will the turf be hosed down with detergent periodically?

I have to say, though, that artificial turf sounds better than the sharp, dusty rock chips in the Shaw Dog Park at 11th and R NW. Lupe often comes home with banged up feet from that surface.
