NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Police Department is trying to find a suspect who bumbled his way through a burglary in Gentilly.  The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

According to police, the burglary happened at about 6:30 in the morning on Saturday, October 19.  The business is in the 2600 block of Jasmine Street, and security cameras recorded much of what happened.

Not only did the burglar struggle to use a crowbar to get past the door, he also had to turn on the lights when his flashlight stopped working.  According to police, the man stole several bottles of alcohol.
