NOPD Arrest Alleged Copper Miner


Nine years after the Storm, some cases of copper mining persist. However, one man has gone from allegedly stripping pipes to strip searches. On Monday (12.08,) David Steadman was arrested and charged with two Burglaries and one Theft.


CBD Business Burglary Binge


NOLA’s glazers were busy this weekend. Six establishments had to replace windows after a Central Business District (CBD) burglary binge in the early hours of Saturday (11.22) morning. Four of the businesses will also be replacing their cash registers, but one thief learned that the tills are emptied before the shops lock up for the night.


Three Thefts, Little Loot


By Ashley Larsen

Crime doesn’t pay. Recently, several crooks have learned this age-old lesson. The NOPD are searching for some thirsty thieves with low ambitions, a low-dollar armed robber, and an unsuccessful shoplifter. 


Laser Tag Looter Quickly Caught


One man’s visit to Laser Tag (6003 Bullard Avenue) did not include a second round of play. Police say that they arrested 27 year old Wayne Horn for burglarizing the futuristic gaming arena moments after the dastardly deed. No word on whether he needed a recharge.


Police Seek Suspect in French Quarter Mugging


Not all of New Orleans' crime involves guns. New Orleans Police are searching for a suspect in a French Quarter Simple Robbery. The Sunday (104) morning mugging involved a traditional beat-down on Canal Street.


Not So Super Robber at Super 8


Super 8 advertises that guests save money so that they have more dollars left for fun. However, a little lagniappe was not enough for one man at the motel chain's location on the 6300 block of Chef Menteur Highway.


Weekend Crime Report


The NOPD have issued their crime log for the first half of the weekend. The register of wrongdoing is short but brutal. Friday’s (9.26) police work included two rapes, one of a child. Additionally, a pair of robberies are under investigation.


A Street Crime on Desire


One criminal is in deep. After failing to grab the loot, he was made by the law and is now on the run. In Gentilly, a robbery was thwarted on Tuesday (9.23). Police have now identified a prime suspect and are on the prowl.


St. Roch Contractors Robbed (Video)


Gentrification is hard work. It can be a dangerous job as well. At the end of August, a pair of contractors working on a house in St. Roch were robbed on the job. After weeks of reviewing tape, police have now released footage of the getaway.


Renovation Robbed


Police are searching for a suspect in a 7th Ward robbery. Many contractors are used to arguing with cranky customers, but one construction worker found his renovation robbed.
