    TEACHER, FOUR OTHERS ARRESTED IN PRINCE WILLIAM DRUG BUST
    Inside NoVA: "Police say they busted a drug ring in Montclair on Monday, and a middle school math teacher was among five arrested.

    All were charged with the use and distribution of the prescription drug oxycodone, said Prince William police spokesman Jonathan Perok.

     Based upon information gathered during the investigation, police executed a search warrant at 15431 Silvan Glen Drive and seized  the oxycodone, drug paraphernalia, an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency, a BMW, records and documents, Perok said."

    WANT TO BUY AN EMBASSY?
    Urban Turf
    via DCist: "Four-level townhomes in Kalorama can easily fetch several million dollars when listed for sale, so when one hits the market for just $1.3 million, it seems like it must be a deal.

    Well, the townhouse that houses the offices of the embassy of the Central African Republic at 1618 22nd Street NW (map) was listed for sale late last week for just that amount. The property is currently being used as offices, so some work would be required if the eventual buyer wanted to convert it into condos or a single-family home. Also, the listing description for the 2,775 square-foot property notes that it is “in need of work”, an indication that the building is in fairly rough shape."

    DC JAIL TO FINGERPRINT VISITORS, CHECK FOR WARRANTS
    Washington Examiner: "All visitors to the District's jail soon will have their fingerprints scanned and checked against law enforcement databases for outstanding warrants.

    The D.C. Department of Corrections is already using the "live scan" fingerprint technology on inmates when they enter and leave the jail, corrections officials said. The digital technology allows the department to take an image of an inmate's fingerprint and check it against D.C. police databases to confirm the inmate's identity."

    EXOTIC DANCER SUES MD CLUB
    Washington Post: "Claiming she should have been paid a regular wage along with tips, an exotic dancer at the Mile High Club in Prince George's County has filed suit under the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act,

    Sabrina Tullos, who has appeared on HBO Real Sex and was Miss Black Nude in 2002, filed the lawsuit Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, according to her lawyer Jimmy Bell.

    Tullos, who began at the club in 2006 and still dances there, argues in the suit that she acts as an employee of the club, not as a contractor, and is entitled to paychecks. She and other dancers receive only tips, according to the lawsuit."
