Re: [Eckington] crime-inee
- Maybe someone at MPD-5D can enlighten us as to what happened and why? But this is a good thing as that area is quite notorious and very much in need of tactical attention.GwenIn a message dated 07/05/2005 4:42:44 PM Eastern Standard Time, klee@... writes:
1. saturday before last a couple people got arrested in front of my house
(unit block R street). an unmarked car with 'vested' cops stopped a heavy
guy in a tall van, and while they were calling him in they waved over a
passing auto and very quickly arrested the young man driving. during the
process, no fewer than 5 more casually-dressed but also 'vested' cops
participated, including one who ran to NCap street and headed north along
the median. one of the cops had a trunk full of arrest paraphernalia and
they took both arrestees away in the paddy wagon. i figured there was some
organized enforcement effort, but no one i've talked to has heard anything
of it. does anyone know what that was about?
2. this morning cops with clipboards were on both sides of Lincoln Rd. on
the south side of R St talking to pedestrians, people in cars, and at least
one DC school bus driver. i'm mildly curious about that too.
