Marion Barry's car stolen, recovered in D.C.

By Clarence Williams

D.C. Council member Marion Barry's car was stolen this weekend but was recovered by city police on Tuesday, officials said.

Barry's silver 2002 Jaguar was taken Saturday morning near the Patricia R. Harris education center in the 4600 block of Livingston Road SE sometime between 10:45 and 11:15 a.m., police said.

An authority said that the keys had been left in the ignition.

Officers recovered the vehicle Tuesday afternoon in the 4000 block of 3rd Street SE, said Cmdr. Joel Maupin, head of the 7th District. And Barry has his car back.

No arrests have been made in the case, Maupin said.

Only a DC Politico would be surprised that his Jaguar was stolen after he left the keys in the car... Irresponsibility raised to unsurpassed levels... rivaled only by the latest Pork Stuffed spending bill.
Where is the Adult Supervision we so desperately need... a word derived from the Latin Despero - without hope.

I wonder if when authorities catch the person who stole the car he/she says "The b!tch set me up."

It's more likely he traded it for a rock.

I hope someone will help CM Barry and his staff find their phone and e-mail messages so they can get about the work of serving the citizens of Ward 8 instead of working on his "reality show". I've been trying to speak to someone in his office for over 3 years regarding a neighborhood issue to no avail.

Vote any one but Barry!!!!!
