NOPD Arrests Suspect in Theft of Seventh District Hotel Property

On November 28, 2018, the NOPD arrested Shawn Moore (DOB: 10-01-1980) in connection with the theft of numerous items belonging to a hotel in the Seventh District.

At approximately 10:00 a.m., Seventh District officers were flagged down in reference to a burglary which occurred at a hotel in the 10100 block of South I-10 Service Road. Several cleaning items – which included a carpet cleaner and a pressure washer – as well as sheets, towels and several televisions were reported stolen from a secured storage area of the hotel.

Another Seventh District officer was also flagged down in reference to a subject being seen pushing a carpet cleaner and industrial laundry baskets down a street in the Seventh District. The officer canvassed the immediate area where the subject was last reported and observed a subject pushing the mentioned items while walking near the intersection of Christian Lane and Dwyer Road. The items – estimated at about $3,000 in value – were confirmed to be those reported stolen from the hotel and were returned to the hotel.

Moore was arrested and booked into the Orleans Parish Justice Center for simple burglary.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is asked to contact NOPD Seventh District detectives at 5046-658-6070.
