Serial Purse Snatcher Sought (VIDEO)


A serial purse-snatcher is at-large in the French Quarter, according to police. The man swiped his first bag last night in the 1000-block of St. Philip St., shortly after midnight. The incident was caught on surveillance video. A similar incident occurred early this morning in the 900-block of St. Louis St., and another in the 800-block of Orleans Avenue. Police believe the same suspect committed the three crimes.  


French Market Purse Snatcher Caught on Film


On Wednesday, we had a purse snatching in the Quarter, imagine that. But this time, it was all caught on film. NOPD PIO's turned DP's and PA's have released some video. They were also considerate enough to offer the following backstory. (Video and backstory after the jump.)
