NOPD investigating string of vehicle robberies near Bayou St. John


NEW ORLEANS – Residents along North Dupre Street in the Bayou St. John neighborhood woke up to smashed glass and ransacked vehicles this morning.

A string of vehicles parked along the 1200 block of Dupre were targeted overnight. Windows were broken and the vehicles were rummaged through, according to neighbors on the scene this morning.

“They busted out the windows, went through the glove boxes. Some cars they have gone through more extensively,” Larry Atcock said. “It’s just disheartening from all the rest we’re going through right now to have something else happen like this.”

NOPD officers were investigating on the scene around 8:15 a.m. Initial reports indicate that several other parked vehicles were targeted on neighboring streets.

Surveillance videos of the suspect or suspects have not been released.
