NOPD Looking for a Kidnapping Subject in the Fifth District

NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD is requesting the public’s assistance in locating a subject for a simple kidnapping incident that occurred on June 19, 2021.  

At around 5:49 p.m., a male subject driving the pictured vehicle around the intersection of North Rocheblave and Reynes Streets enticed two male juveniles into his car by offering them $100 to mow a lawn.  The juveniles did enter the subject’s vehicle, but they were let go.  The same vehicle was also seen in the Lower Ninth Ward.   

The wanted unknown subject is described as a light skinned black male who was wearing a green shirt and blue cargo pants.  The pictured wanted vehicle is described as a white Dodge Charger with a blue dealership placard with the word “Yakis” written on it.  

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the subject and/or vehicle is asked to contact Fifth District detectives at 504-658-6050 or call anonymously to Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free to 1-877-903-STOP.
