Agent No. 72

To you and me, Turtle No. 72 looks like an ordinary Eastern box turtle. To the National Park Service, she’s one of 135 turtles counted by researchers, and one of three with transmitters that wander a fifty-acre area near the DC / Maryland border.

To suspected marijuana grower Isiah Johnson, she’s a snitch.

Next time you’re out and about, contemplating illegal activities in the variety of green parks and patches across our area – you’d better watch out. The turtles are out there.

And they’re waiting.

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
