The 8th District Investigative Unit is seeking your assistance in identifying the two subjects in the attached photos. Over the past several weeks, the 8th District has experienced an increase in bicycle thefts in the areas of the Marigny and Frenchman where bicycles that have been secured with chains have had the chains cut and the bicycles stolen.
