This Week in Crime: Good thinking!

A 40-year-old Reston woman was arrested after entering D.C. Police headquarters and attempting to take a guard's gun:

[She] entered the building at 300 Indiana Ave. NW about 3:45 p.m. and pulled out a handgun, police said. She approached a private security officer who was guarding the door, demanding, "Give me your gun," according to charging papers filed yesterday.

She then pointed her handgun at the guard and pulled the trigger, but the weapon did not fire, according to the charging documents.

The charging papers quoted her as telling police that her plan was to "rob a police officer of his weapon."
Well, at least she went to the right place.
