NEW ORLEANS - The NOPD is looking for a woman caught on surveillance video opening up a package that had just been delivered to a house in Treme and walking away with the contents.

The theft occurred just before 3 p.m. on February 20 in the 1800 block of Ursuline Avenue.

An unidentified woman approached the front door of the home and peered directly into a camera pointed at the porch.
