French Quarter Stabbing (Video)

Early this morning, a come-on in the French Quarter turned into a crime. A man who denied the zealous advances of two women on the street found out that they were looking to get into his pockets not his pants. The incident ended in the hospital.

Two Shootings Overnight

The State Police may be sticking around a little longer, but most downtown residents feel that policing is still an issue in need of attention.

Wrest & Fleece: Clues Emerge in Hearse Heist

NOPD are on hot on the trail of the funeral filcher. Charbonnet Funeral Home is often in the news for laying out the passed by standing them up. However, yesterday morning, the local parlor made headlines when they were robbed. Police have now recovered the unorthodox getaway vehicle and released images of the suspect.

Shooting Off Canal

NOPD Officer Hillal Williams said that there was a shooting on the 100 block of South Rampart. A call coded 34S went out around 4p.m. summoning officers to Canal and Rampart.

Hearse Heist at Charbonnet

Charbonnet Funeral Home is a New Orleans staple that has garnered some national fame for laying out the deceased by standing them up. Lifelike poses at viewings make it seem like the passed are living. However, last night, the bodies in the hearses were very much alive. Around 9:42p.m. the funeral home was robbed.
