New Orleans police are trying to track down two thieves who target drug stores in the city.  Police are not making any connection between the men except to say they’re both targeting similar businesses.

One of the men used a gun to rob the Rite Aid in the 3400 block of St Charles Avenue Sunday morning.  He got away with an undetermined amount of cash.

Police call the second man a “habitual shoplifter”.  They say the man keeps targeting the chain’s Hollygrove location on South Carrollton Avenue.

During his last heist, police say he got away with some alcohol while escaping on a bicycle.

If you have information on either thief, call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
