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.

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.
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.
