SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: ALL TALK, NO ANSWER
A man was attempting to parallel park his 2007 Ford Edge in the 3600 block of Asbury Avenue when another driver in a 2011 Chevy Silverado struck his vehicle. The driver of the Chevy got out and confronted the man, but went into his residence and would not answer the door when the police arrived. He could be seen from the second floor looking out the window, however.
Police responded to a report at 10:59 a.m. in the 4200 block of Potomac Avenue from a man who said he had been the target of identity theft. After receiving a collection call from Home Depot for an $882 balance, and discovering that his name had been used to open Lowe’s and Wal-Mart accounts, he found a letter in his junk mail from his old dentist’s office in Austin stating they had a security breach and that some of their patient’s personal information had been compromised.
