Man arrested for stealing cab

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans Police arrest a man that they say stole a cab.

Detectives arrested 33-year-old Franklin Sevilla in connection with an auto burglary that occurred in the 3200 block of D'Hemecourt Street on June 5th.

Police say the victim forgot to lock his cab. They say the cab was equipped with video surveillance cameras with motion detection.

The camera was activated when Sevilla entered the cab.

That picture, along with other evidence helped investigators name Sevilla as a suspect and eventually led to his arrest.
