Two Odd Car Crimes in Northwest DC

Periodically we check the Second District Police reports for not-your-garden-variety crimes. Here's one in which the car was stolen just before it was to be moved out of state by a car transport company, and another in which the car was destroyed by an arsonist.

On June 30, 2011, between 7 pm and 11 pm, the complainant reported her vehicle was stolen while it was parked in the 4300 block of 47th Street, NW. The complainant reported she had left the keys readily available for a car transport company to move the vehicle to an out of state location. The transport company reported it did not move the vehicle. The vehicle was taken by unknown suspect/s; there is no lookout. The vehicle is a 1995 black Saab station wagon with Oregon tags.

On Wednesday, July 6, 2011, at 10:12 pm a Destruction of Property/Felony offense occurred in the 5300 block of Potomac Avenue, NW (PSA 205) and was subsequently reported by the MPD. A reporting person stated she heard a loud bang in the area and when she looked outside she saw a vehicle on fire. Investigation revealed the fire was intentionally set. There is no lookout for this offense.
