- I have a few things I need to let everyone know about. Over the past
few weeks we have had about five burglaries on the Northwest side of
P.S.A. 501. They have happened in the very late evening or early
morning hours. The suspect entered through a first floor window and did
this while the residents were home. At least one resulted in a
confrontation with the owner and was heading towards a sexual assault
when the suspect decided to flee the house.
So with that please secure your windows as best you can to prevent
anyone from coming into your home. At least that way they have to make
a bunch of noise which will give you a chance to call the police and or
even defend yourself until we get there.
On a more positive note, the Focus Mission Unit made an arrest for a
sexual assault that happened in the alley at 1st and Thomas Street N.W.
He was caught minutes after the assault occurred. We are checking to
see if he was involved in any of the Burglaries, but until we know for
sure be on your toes.
Now for some more positive notes.
In the past few weeks the Focus Mission Units along with our patrol
officers have been targeting some complaint areas. These are the
Unit block of Girard Street N.E.
A search warrant was obtained and served. Two arrests were made for
possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
600 blocks of Girard and Hamlin Streets N.E.
Six arrests have been made for distribution, possession with the intent
to distribute drugs and possession of drugs. Also one handgun has been
Flagler and W Streets N.E.
Four arrests have been made for possession with the intent to distribute
drugs. They also have made two arrests for violation of stay away
orders and are getting a warrant for the same violation on a person who
they had arrested previously and who ran from them last night.
Well that's about it for now everyone. Take care.

- I just moved into Ward 5 and I think the people and the neighborhood
are awesome. However, Sunday night around 9pm my roomates heard
gunshots out infront of our house (T Street and N.Capitol, NE). When
they asked what was going on, they were told it was gang related. Is
there any more information on the shooting? Also, what can I do to
stay out of gang-related crimes? Are they as violent to non-gang
members and are we as likely to be shot at as someone they have a
New to the group and I hate to bring up the bad stuff first, but I'd
like to know how to be smart in my new neighborhood and if there is
anything my roommates and I can participate in to help build our new
neighborhood into a better place to live.

during extreme (like 1AM to 5AM) hours of the morning to make sure
that it isn't stolen. If it's not you driving then we can contact
you to see if you know who the person is that is driving your car.
It's pretty decent deterrent to theft and is an excellent tool for us
to catch car thieves. If you would like more information on this
program ask your PSA Lt. at your next meeting.

- Last night we served a search warrant at 1719 Lincoln Road. We
recovered a large quantity of marijuana some cocaine and cash. We
arrested three people for Possession With the Intent to Distribute
Marijuana and Cocaine. We will forward the information to the owner to
proceed with the eviction of the tenants. If he does not follow through
we will document the incident so that we can try and seize the house on
the next occurrence.
Also we received several calls for gunshots around North Capitol and T
Street N.E. We found no property damage and had no injuries. Take care
