NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Police Department is trying to catch some speedy car burglars.  Police say they used a Porsche as their getaway ride.

The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

According to police, a group of car thieves targeted multiple cars on December 30 in the 4100 block of Chef Menteur Highway.  Police released surveillance video of the car that was used by the thieves.  They say it was a white Porsche SUV.

Police also released surveillance footage from another series of car burglaries from the same night, December 30, but in the 1700 block of Gentilly Boulevard.  In this case, they say that a gun was stolen.  Police also released surveillance camera footage of the car.

According to the NOPD, the footage in the Gentilly Boulevard cases shows a silver SUV.  Police do not describe it beyond that.  But if you look at the footage, it looks more like a white Porsche SUV, the same kind of vehicle that was used in the Chef Menteur cases from the same night.
