Nearly three years after the opening of a dedicated “dog run” at Wisner Park, the city of New Orleans is launching a new round of discussions about potential locations for another dog park — partly in hopes of reducing some of the unauthorized off-leash use of other major parks around the Irish Channel and Lower Garden District by dog owners.
New Orleans police are hoping the public can help identify two different suspects caught on surveillance video in a rash of shoplifting cases at the Circle K on South Claiborne and a package theft on Vendome Place in Fontainebleau, authorities said.
One man is wanted in four different shoplifting cases at the Circle K store near Calhoun Street that took place on Sept. 9, Oct. 11, Nov. 1 and Nov. 7, according to the news release in that case.
“In each incident, the suspect would enter the store in the 6200 block South Claiborne Avenue between 6:15 a.m. and 7:25 a.m.,” the report states. “The suspect would then take two to three cases of Budweiser beer and flee the location.”
In the package theft, a resident of the 4000 block of Vendome Place (near Nashville Avenue) had two packages delivered and left on her front porch around 12:30 p.m. Nov. 20, according to the report in that case. When she came home, she found both packages missing, and her video security cameras showed a man taking them, the report in that case states.
Anyone who can help identify either of the men is urged to call the NOPD Second District station at 658-6020 to speak to a detective, or CrimeStoppers at 822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.
