NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The NOPD released a surveillance image in the hope that it will lead detectives to the shoplifter who stole from an Algiers store Monday evening.

Police say a man walked into the Family Dollar store in the 4000 block of Behrman Place around 5:40 p.m., stuffed several air fresheners into a garbage bag and left without paying for the items.

The man drove away in a white pickup truck.

Call Crimestoppers at 822-1111 if you can help identify the man in the photo.
