Business burglar couldn’t decide whether to be bold or sneaky


NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Police Department is trying to identify and locate a business burglary suspect who made a clean getaway with all kinds of soap. The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

The crime happened last Sunday, May 23, at about 3:30 in the morning at a Family Dollar store in the 4500 block of Old Gentilly Road. The NOPD released security camera footage from the store that shows much of what happened.

In the video, the burglar goes from being bold and smashing the store’s front door glass to being sneaky once inside the building.

Police say he got away with soap, body wash, detergent, headphones and cigarettes. The battle to get those cigarettes is worth the view.
