The NOPD is seeking to locate three suspects in the investigation of an armed robbery and auto theft on February 17, 2021 in the 5100 block of North Claiborne Avenue.

At about 11:30 a.m., the victim reportedly left his vehicle running and unattended for less than five minutes and when he returned, he discovered it missing.  The victim and others began tracking the stolen vehicle.  While they were tracking the victim’s vehicle, one of those assisting the victim was also robbed of her vehicle at gunpoint.  Both vehicles have since been recovered.

Through investigation, NOPD Fifth District detectives obtained surveillance video of the first vehicle theft and the three pictured perpetrators.
