Armed Robbery Suspect Sought in Third District Incident

The NOPD is seeking to locate and/or identify a suspect in the investigation of an armed robbery on October 9, 2020 in the 4200 block of Chef Menteur Highway.

At about 8:03 a.m., the pictured unknown male entered a business and selected two items from an isle and approached the front counter. The suspect then reportedly partially displayed a handgun from his pocket and threatened to shoot a store employee if the employee did not open a cash register. The employee complied, at which time the suspect allegedly took cash from the register and fled the scene.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is asked to contact NOPD Third District detectives at 504-658-6030 or call anonymously to Crimestoppers of Greater New Orleans at 504-822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP.
