I’ve attached that doc (for those of you not on Digest Version of listserv delivery). The burglars aren’t using large tools to open these hatches. So securing hatches and skylights as in Officer Fletcher describes in this doc should make you pretty safe.
We know of 19 Dupont rooftop burglaries. They have not been more widespread than Dupont as far as MPD can figure.
The Tuesday meeting dedicated to this topic went well. MPD is throwing all sorts of manpower at this and needs our help looking out for the perpetrator(s). Please contact your neighbors. Only 625 people of the 18000 Dupont residents are on the DupontForum. The Current should cover it today and the City Paper should tomorrow.
