Metro has prepared a report about the most crime-ridden stations in the system for 2011. The Largo Town Center station on the Blue line -- which was the scene of a carjacking in May -- ranked 6th on the list.
Metro has tallied security information for 2011 and the Deanwood station on the Orange line and the Anacostia station on the Green line were the two most dangerous stations in the system last year, according to the stats, which were first reported by the Washington Examiner.
Those stations accounted for 67 and 64 dangerous crimes in 2011, respectively. Overall crime has dropped by 16 percent, however; in 2010, the top station for crime, New Carrollton, reported 89 violent crimes.
L'Enfant Plaza, which frequently makes the top 10 list for Metro crime, ranked third in 2011. The safest stations -- which reported no incidents of crimes dubbed "Part 1," which encompass larceny, robbery, assault, homicide, and rape, among others -- were mostly in Northern Virginia, with Farragut West also taking one of the spots.
The report on security is expected to be outlined for the Metro board March 8.
