An unknown person (or persons) spray painted graffiti on clusters of cars parked at multiple locations in the area, including blocks near 7th and L Street, and 5th and G Streets Sunday. Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen estimated that about fifty cars were vandalized. He tweeted that MPD is actively investigating the matter, and urged anyone with a private video camera that may have caught the criminals in the act to please turn the footage over to police.

The next ANC 5D meeting will take place Tuesday, August 9th at 7 p.m. at MPD's 5th District (1805 Bladensburg Road). I don't believe they've released an agenda yet.
