NOPD Seeking Suspects in Shoplifting Incidents on Earhart Boulevard

The NOPD is seeking information regarding separate shoplifting incidents that occurred at the Dollar General store at 8201 Earhart Boulevard.

The first incident, which occurred at about 1:10 p.m. on January 15, 2017, a black male exited the store with a large garbage bag filled with unpaid products.  Shortly thereafter, an unknown black female was seen leaving the store with numerous unpaid products in a red laundry basket. The store’s manager told police that she pursued the female suspect, who reportedly dropped numerous items as she fled the scene, heading east on Earhart Boulevard.

The second incident occurred at about 8:25 p.m. on January 18, when an unknown black male was seen taking numerous items from store shelves and exiting the store without paying for the items, fleeing on foot.

Anyone with information regarding either of these incidents is asked to contact Second District detectives at 504-658-6020.

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.
