NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A New Orleans man has been identified as a suspect in a series of burglaries and robberies spanning Orleans and Jefferson parishes, mostly targeting fast-food restaurants, according to a report by our partners | The Times-Picayune.

According to the report, Andre Addision, 55 is accused of attempted robbery at a Wendy's in the 3100 block of South Carollton.

Investigators have tied Addison to similar crimes in New Orleans, but specifics on which crimes were not available Tuesday night, said NOPD spokeswoman Ambria Washington in the report.

According to JPSO, Addison has been linked to at least six Subway burglaries, as well as a robbery at a Shell station in Harahan.

Addison also has at least 10 warrants out for his arrest in Jefferson Parish, including eight secured by investigators with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Burglary Section and two obtained by the Harahan Police Department on charges of robbery and burglary, according to the report.

According to the report, in each of the Subway burglaries and attempted burglaries, the man smashed a window or door and then entered the sandwich shop -- or tried to enter the shop --to steal either the entire cash register or a register drawer.

Anyone with information on the location of Andre Addison is asked to call NOPD's 2nd District Investigative Unit at 504-658-6020, JPSO Detective Darrin Parent at 504-364-5300 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
