Overnight Crime Report: Unclassified Death, Cuttings, Armed Robbery, Beating


After a very violent weekend, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) only handled four crimes on Sunday (6.05) according to the Major Offense Log (MOL). The roster of wrongdoing included one unclassified death, a stabbing, an armed robbery, and a beating.


Shirt Swindle


One local crime victim had the shirt stolen off of their back—sorta. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) is on the hunt for a suspect accused of stealing several packages of t-shirts from a discount store.


Low Stakes Robbery Goes South at Bywater Family Dollar


Never get in the way of fashion! An t-shirt heist in the Bywater got violent on Tuesday (6.09) according to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD). Now, the boys in blue are searching for a suspect.


Crime Bits: Christmas Eve Edition


Not too many New Orleanians were being naughty on Christmas Eve. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) released the Major Offense Log (M.O.L.) for the night of December 24 into the morning of December 25. Only three crimes were included.


Crime Bits: Lower 9 Shooting, Family Dollar Robbed


Crime in New Orleans stayed as hot as the weather Thursday (8.21) night into Friday (8.22) morning. The night was marred by another shooting in the Lower Ninth Ward. On Woodland, a Family Dollar store was robbed.


Occupy Stands Up for the Special Man


Since beginning in mid-September, the Occupy Wall Street movement has spread across the globe, as protesters have found a voice for their outrage at the world's financial powers. Today, it will even reach the Special Man. Around 4 p.m., a group of costumed malcontents plan to Occupy Frankie and Johnnie's Furniture (2600 St. Claude Ave.). They plan to let 'em have it because of a recent play by CVS drug stores to buy the furniture store that lives in TV ad infamy. OFJ is also showing opposition to other corporate development on the St. Claude corridor.
