No good deed goes unpunished. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are searching for a pair of suspects after a man sitting by the river gave a stranger a light and wound up on the receiving end of an armed robbery on Monday (8.17).


Crime Night


The last 24 hours saw crime in the city spike. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD)’s Major Offense Log (MOL) reports that in the period of time spanning from Thursday (8.13) night into Friday (8.14) morning the Crescent City was struck by eight Armed Robberies, two Unclassified Deaths, and a carjacking.

Tossed in the Supermarket: Man Clashes With Security Guard, Robs Rouse's


Making groceries is just not enough for some people. At the Rouse’s at North Carrollton Avenue, one man wanted all the greens also. He wasn’t talking about the collard variety. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) says that a robber made off with over eight grand on Thursday (7.17) night.


4:20 Robbery Off Bourbon


The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) did not specify the reason that two men ducked off Bourbon Street at 4:20a.m. on the night of early Thursday (7.16) morning. However, authorities do contend that the meeting did not end safely; rather it concluded with an armed robbery.


R-Bar Robbery


Updated 6.03.15

Cops on souped-up golf-carts aside, summer always brings crime.  Early Tuesday (6.02) morning, two men were robbed at gunpoint at the R Bar (1431 Royal Street) according to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD). Other sources describe the incident as set down the block from popular drinkery.
