Marion Barry's Jaguar was stolen in Southeast D.C. after the Ward 8 councilmember left the keys in the ignition.
Barry's silver Jaguar was parked on Livingston Road SE, when it was stolen late Saturday morning, according to an MPD incident report. The car wasn't running when Barry left it on the street. So that makes it less embarrassing, maybe?
The brazen car theft of D.C.'s mayor-for-life follows the Thanksgiving Day wallet theft of D.C.'s Mayor-elect Vince Gray. Gray's wallet was snatched after he left it in a CVS in November.
Barry's car was recovered Tuesday, reports the Washington Post.
TBD would be happy to post the incident report for your viewing pleasure, but after an after-hours trip to the First District Station, a prolonged negotiation for its release that only ended after a few calls to the Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman and three (3!) unsuccessful attempts to scan the documents, your TBD reporter just gave up and grabbed a beer.
With any luck, you'll read it later Thursday. Sorry, Internet. TBD is as disappointed as you are.
