NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans police have released new surveillance images of people they believe are responsible for a purse snatching and car theft.

The images show three people exiting from the Walmart location in the 4000 block of Behrman Place on April 7, along with a third unknown male individual seen leaving with the two others.

Video of two people seen on surveillance video crashing a car into two other vehicles in Algiers was released on Monday (April 8).

NOPD later identified the vehicle as stolen.
