NOPD Searching for Suspect in Multiple Burglaries

The NOPD is asking for the public's help in locating a man wanted in a series of burglaries.

Brian K. Carter, (Pictured, Black Male, DOB: 12-31-1970) is being sought in connection with a burglary at a church in the Sixth District.

On May 16, 2023, at about 8:33 a.m., a church in the 2000 block of Louisiana Avenue was burglarized.

Through investigation, detectives positively identified Carter as the perpetrator of this incident.  Additionally, they have linked him to another burglary the next day on May 17, 2023, in the 2800 block of Lasalle Street.

Investigators say Carter has six additional outstanding warrants for multiple thefts and burglaries in the Sixth District.

Carter was last seen wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt with “Xavier” written across the front, ripped jeans, and multicolored sneakers. Carter is known to frequent the Central City area along the Louisiana and Washington Avenue corridors.

Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to contact Sixth District detectives at (504) 658-6060 or Crimestoppers anonymously at (504) 822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-7867.

All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
