By Allison Klein

Awake at 2:30 a.m. Monday, a resident called 911 saying there were some suspicious-looking people at a home near American University in northwest Washington.

Police responded quickly, and saw several people matching the caller's description sitting in a vehicle -- and another person leaving a home in the 3800 block of 47th Street NW.

When they saw police, five men ran away. Police chased, catching four of them. Officers confirmed that the home had been broken into, and charged the four with burglary. Police also confiscated items that had been taken from the house, according to authorities.

Arrested were: Rico Carr, 21, of the first block of Q Street NW; Andre Dicks, 19, of the 3400 block of Stanton Road SE; Andre Reid, 20, of the 5700 block of 6th Street NW and a 17-year-old who lives in northwest.

A description of the fifth suspect was not available.

It would be so much easier to stay in school, smh!! 20-30 degrees at night looking for a target, urgh!! C'mon is time to implement the gun laws..And, shouldn't neighbors be allowed to shoot if they see suspicious activity around your home? My neighbors would get a thumbs up from me!!

So this will all go away once the "Wizards of Benton, AR", build their wonderful stores and end unemployment in DC? Right.
