Gallery Place has the most crime of any D.C. metro stop; Metro Center is second

Metro has released a crime report, available here from the Washington Post.

The report states that Gallery Place places fifth in crime out of all the Metro stops in the region, and has more crime than any metro station in the District.  Number two, and sixth in the region, is Metro Center.

A graph of the amount of crime:

The biggest problem is stolen electronic devices.  In many cases, criminals are actually snatching iPods and iPhones out of victims' hands and running, just as the metro doors are closing.
