11th and Fairmont St, NW
A reader reports:
I recently found a bunch of ID cards, credit cards, and metro cards scattered on the ground on Georgia Ave between Park and Morton. I assume the poor girl was robbed and wanted to try to get her stuff back to her. As I write this, it’s about 100 degrees out and I’m trying to avoid going outside. I googled the 4th district station number and, strangely, the 3rd district came up first. I got a rude woman who spoke like I was bothering her and told me to bring the stuff down to V street. It’s about a 20 minute walk from my place one way to 4th district station and, as I mentioned, it’s disgustingly hot. That said, I was going to make time in my day to do it, but it was going to happen later in the day.
I dug deeper and got the number for the 4th. They had officers stop by less than 10 minutes later where they took my name, number, and DOB and took down the details of where, when, and how I found the cards. The officers were polite, helpful, and genuinely seemed to want to help the girl out. I appreciate their courtesy and quickness.”
