From the October 2011 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Summer saw a minor spate of vehicle thievery on the Avenue, according to police reports. During the early morning hours of August 10, a Nissan Sentra was stolen from the 2300 block of Wisconsin Ave. On August 11, an unlocked Specialized Tricross road bicycle was stolen from in front of 2251 Wisconsin Ave., home of Glover Park Hardware and Washington Sports Club. And on the evening of August 17, a car battery was stolen from a Toyota RAV4 parked near CVS (2226 Wisconsin Ave.)
Pickpockets were also on the prowl. On July 29, a woman reported that her Gucci wallet had been swiped from her purse while she shopped at Whole Foods (2323 Wisconsin Ave.), and on August 8, a Glover Park resident reported that her wallet had been stolen out of her purse while it hung from the back of her chair at the Georgetown Library (3260 R St. NW).
CVS lost one shoplifter and caught one, police say. On August 18, a man stole a bar of Dove soap and ran off through the back alley. And on August 19, a woman with two children in tow was apprehended trying to leave the store with $680 worth of merchandise and no receipt. The goods? Cosmetics, perfume, and a pregnancy test.
