With tourist-heavy Labor Day weekend upon us, the boys in blue are stepping up their presence in the French Quarter and CBD. However, crime elsewhere does not stop.

Know When To Run


Don’t bluff when firearms are involved. And, if you must bluff, remember the words of Kenny Rogers: "know when to walk away and when to run." The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) said that the suspect in an August 10th crime learned these lessons the hard way.


Marigny Mayhem


The most recent Marigny crime involved some drama. A man is accused of breaking into a wine shop, assaulting a cop, and then initiating a chase according to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) who add that the ne’er-do-well is still at large.


Foul Play at the Fair Grounds


Many people have lost their shirts at the Fair Grounds and during Jazz Fest, a few visitors lost their head. However, during this year’s Fest, one citizen lost their car.

A 23-year-old man is dead and an unidentified female driver is in critical condition after an early morning crash on I-10. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) said that the tragic outcome followed a high speed rear-ending.


Morning Marigny Mugging


Muggings have continued to plague residents of the Marigny for the last year with little sign of reprieve. On Thursday (8.28), a pedestrian was robbed in a brazen daylight attack. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) said that there is now a suspect in the 11a.m. incident.


Woman Arrested, Accused of Using Kitchen Knife to Kill Friend
