SBSO SEEKING TWO MEN IN CONNECTION WITH ARMED ROBBERY

The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office has issued an arrest warrant for a New Orleans man and named another man a person of interest in connection with a recent armed robbery in Arabi, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

Mitchell Craft, 39, of the 200 block of Maumus Street in New Orleans, is wanted in connection with the armed robbery which occurred Sept. 11 on Lebeau Street in Arabi.

Another man has been named a person of interest in the incident and is wanted for questioning. He is a black male with a slender build and short, cropped hair.

The Sheriff’s Office is seeking assistance from the public in locating Craft and identifying the person of interest.

On Sept. 11, shortly before midnight, Sheriff Pohlmann said, deputies responded to a call for service in reference to an armed robbery that occurred in the 1000 block of Lebeau Street.

When deputies arrived on the scene they were met by a male victim who said he was followed by a man, later identified as Craft, from a business in Kenner to a residence on Lebeau.

The victim said Craft approached him in the driveway of the residence, brandished a weapon, and demanded his money. Craft fled the scene in a dark 2021 Toyota Camry bearing Louisiana License tag 290EPR.

Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Bureau said citizens who want to share information about this incident or the whereabouts of Craft or the person of interest in this case can do so by calling the Sheriff’s Office at (504) 271-2501. They also can call the Criminal Investigations Bureau’s tip hotline, (504) 271-TIPS or 8477 or Crimestoppers GNO at (504) 822-1111. Callers can leave a detailed message, and either choose to provide their contact information, or remain anonymous, and may be eligible for a cash reward from Crimestoppers.

SBSO: FOUR TEENS BOOKED IN ARABI BUSINESS BURGLARY

Four New Orleans teenagers have been booked in connection with the recent burglary of an Arabi business, St. Bernard Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

Two 17-year-old males, a 16-year-old male and a 14-year-old male all have been booked with simple burglary of a business, simple criminal damage to a business, and theft of a firearm.

On Monday, Sept. 20, shortly after 10:30 p.m., Sheriff Pohlmann said, deputies responded to a call for service in reference to a business burglary in the 200 block of Aycock Street in Old Arabi.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they discovered a black pickup truck had rammed into the front entry doors of St. Bernard Indoor Shooting Center and someone had entered the business.

While inside of the business, the suspects, later identified as the four male teenagers, began taking multiple firearms, including pistols and rifles, placing them in large duffle bags.

The Sheriff said the teens then exited the business, and fled to New Orleans in another vehicle, leaving the black pickup truck behind.

Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Bureau learned the black pickup, a 2018 Toyota Tacoma, and the vehicle the teens fled in, a black 2017 Honda Accord, were both taken by the teens during separate carjackings which occurred in eastern New Orleans shortly before the burglary.

Sheriff Pohlmann would like to thank New Orleans Police Chief Shaun Ferguson and his detectives for their assistance in the case, along with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, the St. Tammany Sheriff’s Office, the Slidell Police Department and the ATF.

The Sheriff said no one was injured in the incident and the investigation is still ongoing.

Citizens who want to share information with detectives about this incident or any other criminal activity pertaining to St. Bernard Parish or any of its residents can do so by calling the Sheriff’s Office at (504) 271-2501. They also can call the Criminal Investigations Bureau’s tip hotline, (504) 271-TIPS or 8477 or Crimestoppers GNO at (504) 822-1111. Callers can leave a detailed message, and either choose to provide their contact information, or remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward from Crimestoppers.
