Open & Shut Case

One man was looking for motorists who left the door open to crime, literally. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) is tracking down a man suspected of committing two burglaries on the 900 block of Ursulines Avenue and attempting several more.

Carnival Crook From Down Under?

Not all of New Orleans crime is homegrown. Minutes after an alleged burglary in the French Quarter, the New Orleans Police Department arrested a 30 year old Aussie for the crime.

Jump Start: Police Chase Down Alleged Car Thief In Quarter

Despite an under-staffed New Orleans Police Department (NOPD), the French Quarter during Carnival is swarming with law enforcement. One man apparently did not read that release. Police arrested Edward Pilot for Simple Burglary, Auto Theft and Criminal Damage to Property minutes after he was accused of committing those crimes in the Upper Quarter on Tuesday (2.10).

Mid-City Mayhem: Police Seek Suspects in Home Invasion

Last week, one Mid City man woke up to some unwelcome late night visitors and lost much more than sleep. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) now have a lead in the February 2nd home invasion.

Bywater Neighbors Thwart Home Invasion

The Bywater is a close community. On Wednesday (1.14), Darryl Morgan learned about the neighborhood the hard way. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) arrested Morgan after neighbors stopped him in the midst of an alleged home invasion.

Thorn on the Bayou: NOPD Seek Suspect in Daytime Break-In

The New Orleans Police Department are investigating another daytime crime this week. There are plenty of clues in an afternoon Bayou St. John home invasion and detectives are releasing images in the hope that the public can help.

NOPD Take Out the Trash in Torres Burglary

Christmas came early for Sidney D. Torres IV. On Christmas Eve (12.24), the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) informed the former trash baron that an arrest was made in connection with a Decemebr 10 breakin into his Esplanade Avenue residence.

Deputy's Gun Stolen In Break In

Many believe that NOLA’s crime problem can be solved by putting more officers on the street. However, one Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Deputy was unable to stay safe even at home. The 32 year old deputy found herself on the receiving end of a home invasion.

Leave the Shrimp, Take the ATM

New Orleanians often confuse the permutations the City’s seafood joints. Kajun Seafood is different than Today’s Kajun Seafood which in turn is different than Today’s Cajun Seafood. However, two men knew exactly where they were going when they burgled Cajun Seafood (1479 North Claiborne Avenue.)

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.
