NOPD works to identify bicycle thief

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A surveillance camera image could help lead the NOPD to the person who stole a bike Sunday (Jan. 25) in the 3000 block of Octavia Street.

The victim told police she noticed the bike secured in her back yard Saturday evening. The next morning, it was gone.

When she looked at her surveillance video, it revealed an unknown man taking the bike by lifting it over the iron fence.

The NOPD released an image from that video which clearly shows the bike thief.

Second District Detective Sa'Brina James is in charge of the investigation.

Police ask anyone with information that could help identify the man to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
