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.


Arrest Made in Subway Stickup Spree


Subway can go back to focusing on the dough in the oven without worrying about the dough in the register. On Thursday (1.22), the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) announced that have collared a suspect in the recent spree of stickups at the sandwich shop. Reginald Wilson was arrested in connection with eight different armed robberies at NOLA Subways.


Crime Diet: Another Subway Stickup


The po-boy is still the most popular sandwich in New Orleans, but Subway has gained quite the following with the criminal element. Over the last six months, the national chain’s NOLA outposts have averaged at least one hold-up monthly. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) say that the streak continued on Sunday (1.18) at the 2700 South Claiborne location.


Teens Collared for Carjacking in Two Cases


In two separate incidents, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) thwarted a pair of carjackings. In the Bywater, three teens, too young for licenses, were arrested. In the East, it took a car chase to bring the suspect to justice.


Police Make Quick Collar in CBD Mugging


The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) chalked up a much needed win in their fight against downtown crime Tuesday (1.13) morning. Officers were able to nab an alleged mugger in the CBD faster than you can shout, “Throw me something Mistah.”


Stabbing on Decatur, Stickup on Burgundy


The New Orleans Police Department are reporting a stabbing and a stickup in the Quarter on Saturday (1.11). An afternoon argument turned violent on the troubled 900 block of Decatur Street. Closer to Canal Street, two couples got mugged in their car.


Disorder on Quarter Border: Buffa's Robbed


On the eve of an anti-crime rally in the Quarter, a popular neighborhood bar was robbed. On Monday (1.05) night, Buffa's (1001 Esplanade Avenue) became the latest local to fall prey to the recent crime spree.


Taking Groceries: Alleged MidCity Mugger Behind Bars


Less than 24 hours into the new year, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) were already dealing with an alleged mugging and the subsequent manhunt. On New Year’s Day (1.01), a MidCity man walked to the store and back with the intention of making groceries. However, he got far more than he bargained for. 


Alleged Mugger Loose on Toulouse


The rash of armed robberies in the French Quarter continued this week. Early on Monday (12.29) evening, another man was held up a few blocks away from the Eighth District’s station. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) have identified a suspect and released a composite sketch.


Subway Hands Over Sandwich & the Dough


Subway’s slogan is “Fresh is Best,” but one man prefers, “Cash is King.” On Monday (12.29), the big box sandwich store’s franchise at 401 South Claiborne Avenue was robbed. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are seeking a single gunman.
