DC Roberies

There have been at least eight burglaries at homes of deaf people near Gallaudet University in Washington, DC in past couple of weeks. The intruders have broken in after midnight and taken electronic equipment - even stopping for a snack at one residence. Because so many deaf people live in the area, the DC police has a Deaf and Hard of Hearing Unit. Members are going through the neighborhood to alert residents of the problem.
