Popular pizza place robbed on Robert E. Lee Blvd.


NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Police Department is trying to find a robber who targeted a popular pizza restaurant. The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

It happened on Wednesday, December 3, at about 12:45 in the morning at the Papa John’s Pizza in the 1500 block of Robert E. Lee Boulevard. The business’ security system recorded much of what happened, and the NOPD released the video.
