NOPD arrests 3 teenage girls for robbing taxi driver

NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD has arrested three teenage girls for robbing a taxi driver.

A 16-year-old girl called for the taxi, which picked up her, a 14-year-old girl, and a 13-year-old girl around 2 p.m. on October 24, according to initial reports by the NOPD.

The trio exited the taxi in the 2000 block of Florida Avenue around 2 p.m., at which point the 16-year-old girl told the taxi driver that she would pay the fare.

Instead, the 16-year-old snatched the driver’s purse off of the front seat, and one of the other teens knocked down a camera that was on the windshield of the cab before all three fled.

The trio was arrested at the intersection of Saint Anthony and North Miro, according to the NOPD.
