Keep an eye on your belongings when you’re out and about. Thieves have been making off with unguarded valuables lately. Some examples from recent police reports:
• On February 8, a shopper left her purse unattended in a cart in the parking garage at Safeway (1855 Wisconsin Ave.). She later discovered that she was missing $300 in cash, several credit cards, and a New Jersey driver’s license.
• On January 28, a shopper left her purse unattended in a cart at Whole Foods (2323 Wisconsin Ave.). A “suspicious female” in her 60s tried to take the cart and then apologized. Shortly afterward, the shopper discovered that her wallet was missing.
• On February 7, a driver stopped to fuel her Nissan SUV at the Washingtonian Gas Station (2450 Wisconsin Ave.). A black Hyundai with tinted windows and temporary tags pulled up next to her, and a man got out, opened her SUV’s rear door, and stole a leather bag containing a wallet, a sweater, a Pennsylvania driver’s license, and $15 in coins. The Hyundai then fled southbound on 37th Street.
• On February 12, a man at Georgetown Plaza (2233 Wisconsin Ave.), left his wallet and iPhone in an unlocked locker before taking a class. When he returned, he noticed the items were gone. Someone later tried to use one of his credit cards to charge $250 at a Safeway in Arlington, Virginia.
• On January 12, a woman at CorePower Yoga (2233 Wisconsin Ave.) found that her silver necklace, black leather boots, and iPhone had been stolen from a community storage area while she took a yoga class.

Beginning Monday, June 16, Whole Foods (2323 Wisconsin Ave.) will deliver orders over $30 for free between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.

“Currently we have an email alias, inahurrygtn@wholefoods.com, which you can use to set up an order for pick-up and, starting tomorrow, delivery,” explains customer service associate team leader Oliver Joslin. “Basically you send us your shopping list, and we will shop the order for you. We usually end up having questions, so we call or email the customer after we finish shopping and to finalize payment.” The delivery radius is approximately 1.5 miles.

Would-be delivery customers must register with the store by filling out a “Bike Delivery Profile” and a credit-card authorization and reading a list of frequently asked questions. The forms can be mailed to the store, dropped off, or emailed to Joslin at oliver.joslin@wholefoods.com. Or, Joslin says, the delivery person can collect the forms when making the first delivery.

“Right now I only have one delivery man/woman scheduled for these shifts per day,” Joslin notes. “If the community really supports this and it grows in popularity I will receive more funding for more shifts and extend the delivery days and times. Also I will be rewarding customers who successfully refer others in the community with gift cards and free products.” (Hyperlocal Glover Park does not accept compensation for coverage.)

If you have questions, you can contact Joslin by email or at 202-333-5393.
