NOPD Searches for Suspects in First District Armed Robbery

The NOPD is seeking assistance from the public in identifying and locating four individuals who are wanted in connection with an armed robbery that occurred at a gas station located in the 3300 block of Orleans Avenue.

The victim told police that on May 20, 2019 around 11:10 p.m., three unknown subjects entered the business armed with weapons and wearing hooded sweatshirts pulled over their head.

One of the subjects allegedly pointed a weapon at the victim and demanded money. The victim complied and handed the subject money from the cash register.

All three subjects exited the business and entered a grey sedan, which was being driven by a fourth subject who remained in the vehicle during the armed robbery.

Anyone with information regarding this incident 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.
