NOPD Identifies Suspect Wanted for Armed Robbery on Dublin Street

The NOPD Second District has obtained an arrest warrant for Felton Thompson (DOB: 8/13/1967) in connection to an armed robbery that occurred on June 22, 2017. Thompson is currently incarcerated in Lake Charles. 

The incident occurred in the 900 block of Dublin Street. During the incident, Felton reportedly approached the victim in his driveway and then forced him inside of his residence at gunpoint.  Once inside, the suspect took the victim’s wallet and keys to his vehicle. The suspect then fled in the victim’s vehicle where he was involved in an accident near the intersection of Freret and Joliet Streets.

Thompson has an extensive arrest record for armed robberies, and was currently on parole for a 99-year sentence for armed robbery after serving 24 years in jail.

He has been positively identified in several other crimes from other jurisdictions including rape in Jefferson Parish and murder in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Thompson is a person of interest in several other cases in the Second District that are currently still under investigation.
