Be Careful and Use Common Sense

On Saturday, October 2, 2010, at 11:50 p.m. a Theft II offense occurred in the 3100 block of M St., N.W. (PSA 206) and was subsequently reported to the MPD.

The victim reported that an unknown suspect(s) stole her purse containing credit cards and other personal items while she was inside a restaurant. There is no lookout for this offense.

Safety Tip: Ladies/Gentlemen: Make a habit of securing your purses/bags while visiting restaurants. Never leave a bag hanging on the back of a chair. Many restaurants become very crowded, especially on the weekends. It only takes a second to become distracted, causing you to lose site and possession of a valuable. Please share these and other safety tips this month with friends, family and neighbors. Knowledge of crime trends can prevent future victimizations.
