The New Orleans Police Department is seeking assistance from the public in identifying and locating a man accused of stealing a wallet from a drugstore at St. Charles Avenue and Broadway.
On Saturday, March 2, at around 7:31 p.m., the victim reportedly left his wallet on the counter after making a transaction. When the victim realized his wallet was missing, he went back to the store and discovered that his wallet was no longer at the counter. He contacted police.
