Possibly related to the 1st Street NW break-ins(?), yesterday I called MPD on a guy trying to break into the rear of 120 S St. NW, where renovation work has been occurring but not for the last week. This was about lunchtime, and after @10 minutes of working at the lock, the guy gave up and left. Cop showed @10 minutes later, pistol drawn and all. The guy was a black male, about 50, average height and build, maybe with some gray scruff about the chin/face. He was wearing a black hat with a brim and white band, and white or light grey pants. Also had on a blue shirt -- not a T-shirt, but like a maintenance man's, with tag or insignia or whatever you want to call them on each breast. Had a black and red backpack on him.
Sound familiar to anyone?
