Surveillance video released by the New Orleans Police Department shows Sunday’s armed robbery of an auto parts store on South Claiborne Avenue, and police are hoping the public can help identify the gunman.

The Advance Auto Parts at 2631 South Claiborne was robbed around 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, when a man dashed in and demanded the store’s cash from its employees at gunpoint, police said initially.

Video of the incident shows a man in a light-colored hooded sweatshirt and a baseball cap holding a gun and ordering the employees to give him the money, then fleeing out the front door in about 90 seconds’ time.

Anyone with information is urged to call the NOPD Sixth District station at 658-6060 to speak to a detective or CrimeStoppers at 822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.
