NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - New Orleans police need the public's help to find Lakisha Hunter, 39, for a theft at Carr Pharmacy in 3500 block of Holiday Drive.

Police said the incident happened around 2 p.m. Thursday.

A male victim told officers that he left a written prescription on the counter at the pharmacy department. He left the store without realizing he hadn't taken the prescription with him.
