By May 16, 2022 0 720•
Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) representative, Sgt. Robinson, spoke before the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2E to give a crime update for the Georgetown area at their monthly meeting held on May 2. He told the commission there were no assaults with a dangerous weapon reported last month due to an increased presence of officers. Robberies were down 67 percent. Two burglaries reported, one reported alongside sexual assault by a Georgetown University student which occurred in their residence in the 3500 block of O St. NW. The other in the 3300 block of Prospect St. NW where a resident left a garage door open and the suspect later entered and grabbed an item before fleeing.
Two motor vehicle thefts took place near the Georgetown waterfront. Robinson noted both vehicles were recovered and the area is being given special attention by MPD. Retail areas are getting hit hardest for reported thefts and theft from auto. A search warrant was used at a smoke shop located in the 3200 block of O St. NW. A handgun, ammunition, four pounds or marijuana, and U.S. currency were recovered. Since then, operations have ceased at that location. A handgun was discovered in plain view in a parked car in the 3400 block of Water St. NW. Two other handguns and ammunition were later recovered and the vehicle’s owner did not have a permit to carry the firearms.
