NOPD Identifies Suspect in Armed Robbery on Franklin Avenue

The NOPD has obtained an arrest warrant for Slick Jones (DOB: 06-21-1999) in the investigation of an armed robbery that occurred in the 5300 block of Franklin Avenue on January 21, 2019.

At about 9:15 a.m., the pictured subject – later positively identified by detectives as Jones – allegedly entered the vehicle of a customer at the Happy Discount store as the victim pumped gas. When confronted by the victim, Jones reportedly produced a black handgun and pointed it at the victim, stating that he was taking the victim’s property. Jones then allegedly fled the scene in the victim’s vehicle.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Slick Jones is asked to contact NOPD Third District detectives at 504-658-6030, or to call anonymously to Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
