NOPD Makes Arrests in Four Burglaries Including A.P.E. Burglary

NOPD Third District detectives have obtained arrest warrants for two suspects believed to have committed four business burglaries in the Airline Highway area of New Orleans between January 6  and January 14, 2024. Three of the burglaries occurred in the 9000 block of Airline Highway, and one occurred in the 3500 block Monticello Avenue.

Detectives obtained video and other evidence from the crime scenes and distributed the information to law enforcement agencies throughout the area. On January 21, 2024, Baton Rouge Police located two persons who were in possession of items matching the property taken in the four burglaries and notified New Orleans Police.   

New Orleans Police Detectives traveled to Baton Rouge and assisted BRPD with a search of the suspects’ property where additional items taken in the four burglaries were located. Further investigation placed the suspects at the scenes of the American Police Equipment burglary and another nearby business burglary.

NOPD has obtained arrest warrants for Benjamin Polasky, white male DOB: 10-06-1962, on four counts of simple burglary and Mindy Bohlander, white female DOB: 01-30-1981, on four counts of principal to simple burglary.  Both suspects are from out of state.

The suspects will be transferred to New Orleans and booked accordingly upon release from Baton Rouge Police.

Anyone with additional information regarding these incidents or suspects should call the NOPD Third District at 504-658-6030 or Crimestoppers anonymously at 504-822-1111.
