Crime Bits

Jan 1- 7: Shot for Pot, Ideal Mart Robbed, Graffiti Arrest



In this week's rundown of wrongdoing, there was a shooting in the 9th Ward, a man was robbed in the Riverbend, and the Ideal Mart in Mid-City was held up. Read on for more crime bits. 


Irish Garda Reportedly Shot in NOLA


New Orleans Crime is making headlines across the pond. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) did not identify the victim of a Tuesday (1.27) morning shooting as per standard policy, but over a dozen European papers did. According to Irish papers, the wounded man is a police officer in County Limerick.


Two For The Blue


Recently, protests against the police have dominated the headlines, but the next week features a couple of events in support of the boys in blue. Citizens will stage a rally to back the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) this weekend. Next week, there will be a party to benefit the mounted units.


Krewe du Vieux to Shakedown Bars


Krewe du Vieux is known for their satire (and sometimes their phallic floats,) but the parade is not without a cause. This year, the cause is evident in the theme, “Begging for Change.” 2015 King Dr. Jim Aiken will be gathering a gaggle of naughty nurses to assist in his panhandling. The change they are begging for will be directed to the cash-strapped New Orleans Musicians' Clinic.


Central City Woman Killed in Morning Shooting


Not only is crime trending in the Crescent City, but daylight felonies are also on the rise. This morning (1.27), a woman was shot to death in Central City at an hour when most people are heading off to work.


After a Struggle, Cops Bag Man Accused of Robbing Hunter


Duck season is over in most of Louisiana. However, on Saturday (1.24), the New Orleans Police Department bagged one suspected crook after a hunter was robbed. 17 year old Kevin Allen is behind bars after allegedly robbing one man and assaulting the cops who came to investigate.


Two More Fatal Shootings Monday Morning


The week got off to a bloody start. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are investigating two more homicides. The West Bank and the East were the scenes of a pair of fatal shootings on Monday (1.26) morning.


St. Charles Stickup


Muggings are not exclusive to downtown. The New Orleans Police Department’s (NOPD) Major Offense Log (MOL) reported only one crime on Saturday (1.24) night. On the otherwise quiet night, officers responded to an armed robbery on St. Charles.


NOLA Bound Flight Diverted After Twitter Threat


New Orleans bound flights can be raucous affairs. However, some passenger en route to the Crescent City experienced a buzzkill on Saturday (1.24) when their plane was intercepted by fighter jets and diverted to Atlanta’s Hartfield-Jackson Airport.


Hit and Run Caught on Camera


Cameras are changing crime. On Friday (1.24), surveillance caught a hit and run collision on tape. Now, the New Orleans Police Department are searching for the suspect vehicle.
