NOPD Searching for Suspects, Vehicle Stolen in Armed Robbery on North Galvez Street

The NOPD is seeking assistance from the public in locating a vehicle that was stolen during an armed robbery in the early hours today (Dec. 5) in the 5100 block of North Galvez Street.

At about 2:15 a.m., the victims exited and walked to the rear of their white 2005 Buick Rendezvous SUV when they were approached by two unknown black males brandishing handguns. The victims were ordered to lie on the ground as the subjects searched them for personal items. The perpetrators then entered the vehicle the victims were in and fled the location.    

One of the subjects is described as a brown-complexioned black male about 20 years of age, and standing approximately 5’11” in height. He was described as wearing a black lumberjack hat, black sweater and dark jeans, brandishing a black and chrome semi-automatic handgun.

The second subject is described as an dark-complexioned black male with a medium build, standing about 5’11” in height with the number “12” and a dollar sign tattooed on the top of his left hand, with medium length dreadlocked hair. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, dark-colored pants and brandishing a black semi-automatic handgun.

The stolen vehicle is described as a 2005 White Buick Rendezvous with an unknown Louisiana temporary license plate. The vehicle has a sticker on the left side of the front bumper that reads “All Lives Matter,” a sticker on the right passenger quarter panel that reads “Obama” and a New Orleans Saints logo on the rear passenger side quarter panel. The vehicle is free from tint, other than the rear windshield has factory-installed tint.

Anyone with information regarding this incident, the suspects or the stolen vehicle is asked to contact Fifth District detectives at 504-658-6050. Citizens with information that can help solve crimes are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
