New Orleans Police Blotter: July 4-11
On this week's index of infractions, cross-dressing crime returns in the French Quarter, carjackings abound and a snatched iPhone gets passed between three people. Here's the weekly blue light special of dispatches from the police beat:
Police Peg One of Their Own in LGD Hit-and-Run
Back in the fall, Officer Roger Jones allegedly drove away from the scene of a Lower Garden District crash where he slammed into a parked car. But his actions caught up with him today, when the 14-year NOPD vet was arrested, according to New Orleans police. The 38-year-old is accused of slamming into a parked car on Sept. 19, 2011, near the corner of Jackson and Magazine Sts., and fleeing the scene.
Pickup Truck Exposes Inner Workings of Justice
When a car hits the front of the Mother-in-Law Lounge, perhaps its fate, or some type of voodoo. But, for one pickup truck driver, hitting the DA's office seems to have taken a little more initiative. After driving over sidewalks and up steps, the pickup truck slammed into the front door of the Orleans Parish District Attorney's office Sunday. The truck then took off, providing the equation for a classic hit and run. Surveillance video obtaned by WWL-TV showed the turquoise truck driving up the stairs that lead to the office, and backing out when the deed was done. The driver left only a sideview mirror behind.
