NOPD officers are searching for Trenell Garner (DOB: 02/25/1999) and Bryant Wells (DOB: 12/16/1999) after their alleged involvement in an auto theft that occurred in the First District.

On May 25, 2019, the victim’s vehicle was parked in the 2700 block of Orleans Avenue when Garner and Wells arrived in a black GMC Yukon, bearing Louisiana license plate #QNLM418, which was reported stolen from the 3200 block of Saint Claude Avenue on May 8, 2019.

Garner reportedly exited the GMC and entered the victim’s vehicle, while Wells relocated to the driver’s side of the GMC. The subjects then fled the scene in the vehicle they arrived in and the victim’s vehicle.

On May 27, 2019, officers located the victim’s stolen vehicle in the 1800 block of Feliciana Street with the driver’s side rear window smashed in.

Anyone with information regarding the subjects’ whereabouts is asked to contact First District detectives at 504-658-6010. 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.
