Someone broke into the home of a D.C. Council member.
Thieves entered through a rear window and took two computers and a camera the afternoon of Aug. 26, said At-Large Councilmember David Grosso.
“They must have stood on somebody’s shoulder to reach the window,” Grosso said.
He’s lived in the same Northeast home for 14 years and never had a problem, but living in an urban area, you have to expect things like this, he said. It could have been worse, he added.
Police responded immediately and took fingerprints. Grosso spoke with a detective and Chief Cathy Lanier. Police told him they do have a lead on recovering his property.
Neither of the computers had any government information on them.
Someone broke in to Mayor Vincent Gray’s home in 2010, when he was council chairman.
