NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Police Department wants your help finding 37-year-old James R. Hood, who is wanted for theft and possession of stolen property.

Police say Hood advertised a Bobcat Skid-Steer tractor, valued at $30,000, for sale on Craigslist. A contractor from Mandeville contacted Hood and made arrangements to meet him. After seeing the Bobcat, the contractor contacted a local Bobcat dealer and learned the Bobcat was the property of Louisiana Landscaping Specialist Inc. The contractor then contacted the business and learned the Bobcat had just been stolen. Hood then fled the location.

If you can help police find them, call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
