On November 11, 2022, the NOPD arrested David Williams (black male, DOB: 12-19-1990) on multiple firearm and narcotics charges.
At about 1:00 p.m., officers with Seventh District Auto Theft Unit and Fifth District were investigating the theft of a motor scooter that occurred on November 9 in the 800 block of Commerce Street.

As officers arrived at the location, they located a scooter matching the description of the stolen vehicle and three subjects were seen in the driveway.
