NEW ORLEANS - The NOPD is looking for a woman who disguised herself with a wig before robbing a French Quarter business at gunpoint.  The case is the latest one to roll on  the Wheel of Justice.

The crime happened at the Lush cosmetics store in the 500 block of Royal Street on Friday, September 7, at about 5:30 in the evening.

According to the NOPD, the woman walked into the store while carrying two bags and posing as a customer.  They say she walked to the counter and lifted her shirt, revealing a handgun, then emptied the cash register.

The woman was wearing a gray or silver wig in surveillance video provided by the NOPD, but witnesses say she actually has very light colored hair that is almost white.

The unidentified woman is about 5’4” inches tall with a slender build, and is possibly in her late 20s to early 30s with multiple tattoos on her arms.

Witnesses told the NOPD she had scabs or scars around her mouth.
