On Monday, November 7, between noon and 2 p.m., a rowhouse on the 2200 block of Shannon Place SE was burglarized.
Brian Kendrick-Brown says a group of teens, several boys and possibly one girl, kicked in his front door. They allegedly stole 52", 32" and 25" wall-mounted, flat-screen TVs, a Playstation, an iPod, an iPhone, watches, shoes, boots, coats, jeans and other clothes.
As Kendrick-Brown puts it, "They cleaned me out."
However, the stolen item Kendrick-Brown is most upset about is his 1.5 year old Teacup Pomeranian named Mohave. The dog is 3.5 lbs, with white and blonde fur. He is also hyperglycemic, requiring daily medication and regular monitoring of his sugar levels.
Because car burglaries have become a problem in this neighborhood recently, another resident happened to have a surveillance camera focused on the street when Kendrick-Brown's house was broken into. Footage shows a group of teens wearing white shirts and khaki pants - which Kendrick-Brown believes are high school uniforms - walking along the block on look-out and then entering the front door.
Kendrick-Brown believes they exited with their loot out the back door. In two hours, he says they got away with more than $5000 worth of electronics and other items.
He and his roommate Andre Antar Wright plan to move because they're angry and feel victimized, but they're most concerned with getting Mohave back. They're offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to the recovery of the dog. Anyone with information is urged to call police or Kendrick-Brown at 202-904-0048.
