NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) The New Orleans Police Department is looking for a team of car thieves who stole a car in Algiers. The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

According to police, the theft happened on October 2 at a little before 8:00 in the morning at a convenience store in the 4900 block of General Meyer Avenue. Much of what happened was recorded by one of the store’s security camera.

The footage shows a pickup truck with a trailer backup to the store. Moments later, the driver is seen pulling the store’s air hose to the truck and trailer.

About five minutes into the stop, a car arrives and a passenger gets out then dives through the truck’s open window on the passenger side. The driver appears to have no idea what’s happening until the truck pulls away.
