New Orleans police are searching for a man wanted for stealing lawn equipment and power tools from an apartment. The incident, which took place in the 5500 block of Pratt Street, was reported to police on September 15, 2015. 

According to police, the victim rented an apartment at the location, from May of 2015 to September 5, 2015, to a man identified as 38-year-old Christopher Taranto. After the suspect left the apartment, the victim realized that $1500 worth of power tools and lawn equipment were missing.
