Neighborhood Involvement Does Help Reduce Area Crime

October 16, 2017

Here’s a great example of how neighbors watching out for their community can make a difference. Last Thursday, when a neighbor noticed that a group of men were entering a building that was being renovated late in the evening, they called 911 to alert MPD. The questionable subjects were entering the building from the alley.

Below is MPD’s description of the call for service shared on the 4D listserv on Friday:

Fourth District units responded to the 600 block of Rock Creek Church Road NW just before 10:30 pm, regarding a call for subjects entering an unoccupied residence under renovation.  Officers arrived on the scene and discovered 5 individuals inside the location, officers also recovered a .25 caliber handgun from the scene.  5 individuals were arrested and charged accordingly, and another gun has been taken off the streets of the city!

Demolition at 3619 Georgia Avenue Finished, Will Work begin Soon?

October 6, 2017

The razing of the structures at 3619 Georgia Avenue, at the corner with Princeton Place, appears to be finished with the debris carted away. It is unclear if work on the approved development for the site will continue immediately, though it is hoped to progress soon. I note that the building was originally constructed as a gas station in 1930. In looking at the site yesterday it looks like they underground tank has been removed without too much trouble.
