Grandmother Booked for 3-Year-Old's Death


A 42-year-old New Orleans woman was arrested after her 3-year-old grandson was fatally shot while sharing a bed with her. Police said that the a gun under the pillow discharged, killing the child.


Crime Bits: Saturday Spike


The crime continued Saturday (10.10) night and Sunday (10.11) morning. Today’s Major Offense Log (MOL) is out and the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) reported a total of eight robberies and burglaries in the last 24 hours.


NOPD Trying to Get "Head"


Despite the impassioned national debate about guns and the Second Amendment, one local man allegedly decided to let a virtual stranger named “Head” check out his gun—in his parked car—at night. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) said that the story did not end well.


Plate Readers Gives Suspects the Boot


License plate readers are good for more than just dispensing the boot. Two suspects are in custody for a host of charges after one of the readers tipped off a cop on routine patrol according to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD).


NOPD Caught Between WBOK and a Hard Place


Community radio station WBOK is no stranger to criticism of the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD). However, the left-leaning media outlet is grappling with how to balance a third party commentary on the issues with first party experience of being a crime victim after a bizarre crime on Friday (9.18) night.


Popeye's Perp Popped


Popeye’s ain’t the Saints or even Tony’s, but the fried chicken mecca still ranks high on the list of Louisiana state treasures. Needless to say, after one man tried to pull a fast one on the staff, the suspect wound up with a free ride to Central Booking.


Know When To Run


Don’t bluff when firearms are involved. And, if you must bluff, remember the words of Kenny Rogers: "know when to walk away and when to run." The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) said that the suspect in an August 10th crime learned these lessons the hard way.


Dog Fight in Quarter


A bizarre fight about a dog took place in the French Quarter’s Three Legged Dog (400 Burgundy Street) on Saturday (7.18) night. The incident concluded when the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) arrived to arrest Richard Abbott for Aggravated Battery and Possession of a Firearm on the premises of an Alcoholic Beverage Outlet.


Busted Down on Bourbon Street


Fourth of July weekend passed without any violent crime in the Quarter. Howeve, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) did arrest one 18-year-old on Bourbon for carrying a gun and some weed.


Civil War: Brothers Brawl on America (Street)


America was in crisis on Thursday (6.18). America Street that is. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are searching for a 19-year-old man after he allegedly assaulted his brother.
