NOPD Looking for Marigny Miscreants: Laptop Thief, Burglar Wanted (VIDEO)
Through YouTube video edited to look like an action movie sequence and traditional wanted poster, New Orleans police are asking for the public's help to track down suspects for a pair of November crimes that happened at opposite ends of the Marigny. In the first incident, a man took a laptop from a house in the 2000 block of Burgundy St on Nov. 6. Aiming and succeeding in getting everyone's attention, police added action movie music, quick cuts, and sharper lettering to surveillance video that was obtained in connection with the case.

by M.D. Dupuy
