Marigny Mugger Strikes Twice


Police are looking for the culprit (pictured) behind a pair of robberies that happened early Saturday morning in the Marigny. The two incidents happened within less than an hour, starting around 1:30 a.m.


Canal St. Attack Suspects Sought


Police are searching for Jamie Gilmore and Daniel Kelly, two men who are suspected of attacking a man at 8 Canal Street, according to NOPD. The incident occurred on February 21, and the suspects are pictured. 


Marigny: Masked Man Robs Subway (VIDEO)

CBD: Quintet Wanted for Pair of Armed Robberies (Video)


NOPD detectives are looking for a group of five robbers who struck twice in the CBD over the weekend. During one of the incidents, a victim suffered a graze gunshot wound, police said.


Christmas Crimes

One Shooting, Two Stabbings, & Many Muggings



Christmas may have been a holy night, but it was not a silent night for the men and women of the New Orleans Police Department. The NOPD responded to over a dozen felonies from the LGD to the Chef. A drive-by shooting provided a stark reminder of systemic crime, and a series of armed cast a pallor over the holiday.


Marigny Robbery Video Released by NOPD


A Thursday morning mugging in the Marigny was caught on video, and police are hoping the footage helps catch the suspect. The incident happened about 1:30 a.m. in the 800 block of Spain Street. A 24-year-old man was walking on the sidewalk, and noticed he was being followed.


Rob, Repeat: NOPD Seeking 1 Suspect in 2 CBD Stickups (VIDEO)


A CBD robber decided he had so much success, he would go back for seconds. On Wednesday night, detectives believe one man is responsible for a pair of robberies that happened within minutes of each other on Carondelet and Magazine Streets.


Teen Missing, Min Moon Robbed (PHOTOS)


The digital era has allowed the NOPD to tack up more wanted posters than Wyatt Earp. Today was no exception as the forensics folks gave us a twofer. In the East, they released a frame-by-frame breakdown of an armed robbery at Chinese restaurant. In the Seventh Ward, police are searching for a missing teen.


Broadway Hustle: Robbery at The Mushroom Caught on Video


Video of last week's robbery at The Mushroom emerged on Tuesday. Unlike the cross-dressed chaos of last year's stickup at the Tulane-area record store and emporium in the 1000 block of Broadway, this job was a fairly mellow affair. About 11:30 p.m., a man with a rag over part of his face and a gun tucked into his waistband walked in to the store and told a female clerk to hand over money.


Tulane-Area Record Store Robbed


A Tulane record store was robbed for the second time in a year on Thursday. Tulane police say the manager of The Mushroom (1000 Broadway St.) was held up at gunpoint about 11:20 p.m. last night.
