NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Police Department is looking for a man who was driving a white Audi but needed 3 credit cards to pay his drive-thru tab at McDonald’s. The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.
According to police, all three credit cards were stolen from a car in the 1400 block of Calhoun Street. Oh, and the Audi was also stolen from another location and later found abandoned.
Police released surveillance video of the fast food visit. They also released video of another car burglary that also happened on Calhoun, but in the 500 block, and with a white Audi making the scene.
The video from the 500 block shows the Audi pull up to a parked car and at least two people get out of it. Police say the people in the Audi burglarized the parked car then left the scene. But a second surveillance clip shows a white Ford pickup make a second sweep down the block a couple of hours later. Police say that the same people were in the Ford and they also burglarized a car.
So far, even though the burglaries happened days apart on the same street, and with a white Audi involved in both, the NOPD isn’t saying the cases are connected just yet.
