A news crew for ABC7 in D.C. was covering a press conference on a task force for local robberies when irony struck hard. While D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Police Chief Cathy Lanier discussed the launch of a new initiative against robberies, someone burglarized the ABC7 crew's car. 

Reporter Stephen Tschida told his station at least one thief smashed a car window and ran off with a bunch of equipment. The station says this occurred "just feet" from the press conference, which was held outside.
