NOPD Searching for Suspects in Attempted Auto Theft

The NOPD is searching for a subject wanted in connection with an attempted auto theft in the Second District.

The incident occurred on January 29, 2023, around 8:48 a.m. in the 2600 block of Short Street.

A black male, wearing all black, allegedly attempted to steal the victim’s white Kia Soul. A neighbor observed the incident and shouted at the subject.

The subject then ran to a black sedan and fled the area.

On January 30, 2023, around 8:26 p.m., a silver or gray sedan with a broken rear passenger window, covered in plastic/tape pulled behind the victim’s Kia Soul.

A subject wearing a black hoodie with a white logo on the back, looked inside the victim’s vehicle and it is believed he was attempting to steal or burglarize the vehicle.

Anyone with information regarding this incident or the identity and whereabouts of the wanted subject is asked to contact any Second District detective at 504-658-6020 or call Crimestoppers anonymously at 504-822-1111 and toll-free at 1-877-903-7867.
