And Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser is now complaining she doesn’t have enough police.
A CVS pharmacy in Washington, DC is being targeted by thieves on such a regular basis that the store is basically empty. A large group of teenagers is hitting the store so regularly that they’ve even figured out when the store receives new deliveries of goods.
FOX News reports:
’45 or more’ kids in DC routinely steal from CVS, then ‘stomp on’ food and beverages as shelves remain empty
A group of roughly 45 kids routinely ransack a CVS in Washington, D.C., with many thieves taking the food and beverages and stomping on them, according to a Fox 5 report.
“When you walk into this CVS, you’d think the store is closing because there’s barely anything on the shelves,” Fox 5 reporter Sierra Fox said of a CVS in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of D.C. “In fact, the only items in stock are the ones that are locked up. I did ask an employee what gets stolen the most, and they just laughed and said ‘everything.’”
“A big group of kids, like 45 or more, walk in before school, after school and late at night to steal chips and drinks,” Fox 5 reported Tuesday. “They even throw the food and beverages on the ground and stomp on them, leaving behind a big mess.”
“Staff at CVS have been alerted that thieves are aware of when new shipments come in and that’s when they target the store,” the outlet added.
Fox 5 was told that “street vendors are allegedly paying people to go in and steal stuff so they can resell it.”
This hurts low income people the most.

From FOX News:
DC Mayor Muriel Bowser complained of being short 400 cops days before congressman’s gunpoint carjacking
Democrat Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser complained about the nation’s capital losing about 400 police officers in the past several years, just days before Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, was carjacked at gunpoint.
Bowser had pleaded that the district needs more officers at a recent press conference
“We don’t have the officers that we need, and sadly we’ve lost three to four hundred officers in the last four years,” she said. “We haven’t had officers in our schools, and we have policies that make it difficult to recruit new officers.”
Cueller said he was parking his car in D.C.’s Navy Yard neighborhood, a short distance from the U.S. Capitol Monday evening, when three armed assailants approached and stole his vehicle.
People have had it.
