NOPD Releases Surveillance Footage of French Quarter Rape Suspect


The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) Special Victims division released a surveillance video of an unknown male suspect in connection with a sexual assault in the French Quarter. As NoDef previously reported, the incident occurred during the early morning hours of April 16 on the 1400 block of Chartres Street. 


Harrah's PitPocket


Around 6p.m., the victim was enjoying some adult gaming at the Casino (#8 Canal Street) when he joined the ranks of the many who realize they have fewer valuables than when they entered said building according to the NOPD. Authorities said that the suspect slyly stole the man’s cellphone and credit cards.


Lakeview Car Crooks Soughts


A Lakeview property owner nipped a crime in the bud in the wee hours of Wednesday (10.14) morning. Now the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are on the hunt for a duo suspected of attempted auto theft.


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.


Cops & Robbers


Burglaries and a robberies are often confused. For the record, both are property crimes; a robbery normally involves a present vicim and a burglary involves entry into private premises, followed by theft. However, the two crimes combined were committed six times over the past 24 hours according to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD).


Hennessy Heist Suspect Sought


Tupac rapped, “They wanna know who's my role model? It’s in the brown bottle-Hennessy.” Unfortunately, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are taking some exception to the late artist’s life-advice. The Five-Oh are searching for a man accused of snatching several bottles of the cognac from a Mid-City drugstore.


Bug-Zap Bandit


Oh the joys of sitting on a porch and sipping an adult beverage during a Southern summer night. One local will be denied such pleasures after the wanton theft of their launch furniture and bug-zapper on August 18th.


Two Wheeled Bandit


The sale of a collapsable bike collapsed when a potential customer allegedly pedaled off with the merchandise. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) believe that 26-year-old Shane Michael (pictured) is to blame.


School Bus Shenanigans Suspects Sought


Most kids in NOLA enjoy summer as a time away from schooling the big yellow bus. However, a pair of ne’er-do-wells allegedly used summer recess as an opportunity to steal a school bus. The New Orleans Police Department ID’d a pair of suspects in the heist.
