Police and Bangs on Georgia Avenue Cause Concern Tuesday Night

I received a few emails asking about a police presence and explosions on Georgia Avenue that occurred around 9 p.m. on Tuesday, December 13th, near the intersection of Newton Place, NW. In reaching out, I was able to find out that it was part of an investigation conducted by the ATF in which MPD assisted in executing a search warrant using their Emergency Response Team. The explosions/bangs people heard were the result of flash-bang grenades used as part of the operation.

The investigation is ongoing with no additional specifics at this time.

    Not really surprising. All the drug activity around the area has surged around the past 2 years, and coupled with the well known house at 805 Rock Creek Church road, there was clearly a lot of nefarious activity flooding the neighborhood. Now, since the marshall raid at 805 Rock Creek Church road, the neighborhood has gone back to quietness and there’s available parking again. It’s sad it took so long to bust the ring up, but the community is thankfully quiet and a lot safer for now.
