New Orleans police release security camera video of three men believed to be involved in the pickpocket theft of sporting event tickets in New Orleans Saturday night.

Police say the tickets stolen were for an NFL game, but they don’t say for the Super Bowl… although the crime happened Super Bowl weekend and there are no other games set for the year.

Police say one of the suspects was able to remove seven tickets from the back pants pocket of a customer who was leaving Harrah’s Casino with other family members.

They say the man is seen in an Adidas jogging suit along with two accomplices.  But police think six or more people may have been involved in the crime.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
