NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans Police arrest a man who they say is responsible for carjackings in St. Tammany and St. Bernard Parishes. St. Tammany deputies, and New Orleans Police arrested Perry Bridges Wednesday night in Orleans Parish.
On Tuesday November 24, a Slidell woman says a man, now identified as Bridges, pointed a gun at her and took off in her 2007 Lexus G350.
St. Tammany deputies and NOPD officers found her car this week as well as a Chevy Cobalt that was reported stolen out of New Orleans. They found the cars behind two abandoned homes on Bunker Hill Road in New Orleans East.
Police also arrested a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old, both from New Orleans, in connection with the Slidell area case.
Police believe the teens, as well as Bridges, are also connected to a carjacking in St. Bernard Parish.
Bridges is being held in Orleans Parish on a stolen property charge, but will be brought to St. Tammany Parish to face carjacking charges.
