The NOPD is asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating a man wanted for the simple burglary of a home in Algiers.

The incident happened Sunday in the 200 block of Maumus Avenue. The male victim told police that around 7:30 p.m., he locked and secured all the doors and windows to his home except for a front window which was left open to circulate air after the room had been painted. He returned home the next day around 3 p.m. and found the front door of the house closed but unlocked.

He searched the home and discovered that a 55-inch flat screen television had been removed from the master bedroom. A video camera captured the suspect carrying the television through the front door.

The suspect was described as a white male, around 30 to 40 years old, clean-shaven with black medium-length straight hair and wearing a black hoodie and dark pants.

The Fourth District investigative unit is in charge of the on-going investigation and can be reached at 504-658-6040.

Citizens with information that can help solve a crime are asked to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP.  You could receive a cash reward of up to $2,500 for the information leading only to the arrest, except on homicides, where Crimestoppers will pay half of the reward upon the arrest and half on the indictment of the responsible person(s).  You do not have to give your name nor testify to receive the reward but you must contact Crimestoppers directly with your information.
