Uptown Crime: Bat-Toting Robbers Strike 3 Times, Magazine St. Muggers Sought


A terrible trio carrying a baseball bat pulled off three consecutive robberies in the Lower Garden District Wednesday night, according to police. One of the victims was taken to the hospital in serious condition after being hit in the head with the bat, while one of the assailants was arrested, police said.


Robber Leaves iPhone in Stolen Car, Calls NOPD


A robber scored himself a new ride in New Orleans East, but ended up in jail because he called the police in an attempt to con them into returning the iPhone he left in the stolen car. Darrin Faciane, 20, allegedly held up two people and stole a car Friday morning in the 7900 block of Haney Drive. Later, Faciane called NOPD playing the victim after he realized he left his phone behind when he ditched the car.


Two Guns Seized in 1 Week at MSY


Security agents at Louis Armstrong International Airport are quickly amassing a killer handgun collection. The second gun in a week was seized from a carry-on bag on Friday, said Transportation Security Administration spokesman Jonathan Allen said this week.


NOPD Tracks Stolen iPhones to Three-Peat Thief


One iPhone wasn't enough for one teenage robber on Wednesday night, and he ultimately fell victim to the Clould. A 15-year-old man who allegedly wielded a gun in robberies in the French Quarter, on Frenchmen Street and in the Marigny on Wednesday was arrested after stolen smartphones were traced to his location. Cops caught up with the teen in the 5300 block of Urquhart St., which is in the Lower 9th Ward, hours after the robbery rampage began at about 7:30 p.m., according to police.


LSU Student Fires Gun at Her Mother in New Orleans: 2 Arrests Made


An LSU student made a surprise visit home to New Orleans at the end of the weekend, but it wasn't to do laundry. Nicole Lea Boover, 19, allegedly drew a gun and fired shots at her mother on Sunday morning while at her home in Mid-City, according to officials. Boover's mother was not injured in the incident. A few hours after the shots rang out, police received a call from Boover's stepfather, alerting them of the incident. Boover was on her way back to Baton Rouge with "male companion" Nathan Yuhas, the stepfather said.

Crescent City Crime Bits

New Orleans Police Blotter: June 27 - July 4, 2012



In this week's debased dossier, a market robber made sure to take some shrimp as lagniappe, a hammer and ice pick were used as weapons in separate assaults and police rounded up a handful of robbers. Every week, NoDef lists all of this week's crime, all in one place:


Robbery Cluster in French Quarter, CBD


Along with a rash of robberies Uptown, the French Quarter and CBD have also seen a heavy dose of muggings and confrontations within the last few weeks. Though armed robberies in the city's most congested districts are nothing new, this weekend saw a particularly high tally. The NOPD's 8th District reported 10 incidents over the weekend, eight of which were within da Quarters. All of the victims came out unscathed, but there were dramatic moments.


Stocking Stuffer


During  a traffic stop Monday in the 1800 block of O'Reilly St (We know. That debate's for another time, though), New Orleans police spotted a dark colored sock inside the vehicle. Was it for hanging on the mantle? Filling with toys? For girls and boys? Well, no. Inside the sock, there was a .357 magnum. Police also confiscated crack cocaine from the car, and arrested 34-year-old Larry Daliet. The gun was not registered, police said.
