Isaac Looters Locked Up
Despite Mayor Mitch's warning that "if you loot, you wear an orange suit," some instances of storm pilfer have been reported.
In one case, at least one man was denied what may have been a dream to open his own sporting goods store. One of the largest occurred at the Sports Zone at 5471 Crowder in New Orleans East. After the theft was reported, police got information about where the loot was being hidden, obtained a warrant, and went into the house. They found guns, jewelry, various clothing items including caps, shorts, socks and pants, as well as tennis shoes. Sidney Brooks, 17, was arrested in connection with the incident. Police think there could be more suspects.
Uptown Messenger reported on the crimes. One incident occurred Wednesday at a club at S. Robertson and Martin Luther King Jr. A couple were caught stealing alcohol and money from the bar, and both were booked. Also on Wednesday, five people were caught breaking into a corner store at Jackson and Magnolia. On Tuesday night, four men were caught by police breaking into a building at 7th and Danneel.
On Thursday morning, NOPD Chief Ronal Serpas said there were 16 cases of looting reported as the storm passed over, with police taking action in 13 of those. If convicted, looters get a mandatory sentence of 3 years in that orange suit.
