NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Police Department is trying to find a man who is accused of returning to the scene of a crime only to strike again.  The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

According to police, the crimes happened in the Treme' area in the 1200 block of Marais Street.  The first instance happened on November 1 at a little after 6:00 in the evening.  Police say a man burglarized a car then tried to break into a home as well.  Both the house and car belonged to the same person. Police say the victim was home at the time and was able to scare away the suspect.
