NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD is looking for two women after one of them was caught shoplifting at an Algiers business and the other pulled a knife on the store’s employees.

The incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. on June 29 at a beauty shop in the 3600 block of General DeGaulle Drive, according to the NOPD.

An employee spotted one of the women placing an item into her purse and confronted her about it.
