Wheel of Justice

NEW ORLEANS — Those Range Rovers are really nice, and really expensive. At least one made for an easy target at a convenience store on Elysian Fields recently. The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

The crime happened at a business at 3101 Elysian Fields on September 12 at about 6:15 in the evening, according to the NOPD.

The department released surveillance video on its YouTube channel that shows a man park a white Range Rover in front of the business and go inside. 15 second later, the suspect walks up and looks at the SUV. Less than a minute later, the thief is inside the car and driving away. The owner of the car exits the store just as his Range Rover drives out of sight of the store’s security camera.

According to the NOPD, the car theft is one of three at the same business over a series of just a few days. Police do not indicate if the keys were left in any of the cars or if the thieves were able to defeat the vehicles’ security systems.
