A theft happened at a house on the 1700 block of A Street SE about 6:15 p.m. on July 18, police said. The area is about two blocks from RFK Stadium.
Video police released over the weekend in connection with the theft shows a tall man walking down the sidewalk in front of the home. The man then looked at the residence, quickly turned off the sidewalk and walked through the home’s front gate, disappearing from view.
When the man reappeared, he held a medium-sized brown package. The man then left the property, appearing to take drags from a cigarette as he walked down the sidewalk.
