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.


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.
