The NOPD has obtained an arrest warrant for Bridget Smith (DOB: 11-15-1981) in connection with an incident that occurred in the 3600 block of MacArthur Boulevard on May 29, 2018.

The victim told police that at about 6:07 p.m., he had forgotten his vehicle keys on the counter of a business in the area.
