The NOPD is seeking assistance from the public in locating a vehicle reported as stolen on Five Oaks Drive on September 28, 2018.
At about 8:30 p.m., the victim’s brown 2015 Honda CRV bearing Louisiana license plate 382CAG was burglarized, during which time a spare key to the vehicle was stolen. At about 10:55 p.m., an unknown subject who arrived at the location in the pictured suspect vehicle – believed to be a Cadillac Deville (at right) – used the reported stolen key to gain access to the vehicle. The suspect then drove away from the scene in the victim’s vehicle.
The victim’s vehicle is further described as having a magnet on the right rear side of the license plate that says “St. Andrews Apostle School.”
The suspect vehicle reportedly matches the description of a vehicle reported as stolen in an incident earlier in the day in the 1000 block of Alix Street.
