NOPD Searches for Suspect Wanted in Carjacking Incident
NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD is seeking assistance from the public in locating Allen Quinn (DOB: 02-23-1994), who is wanted in connection with an unarmed carjacking that occurred on Friday, April 6, 2018.
The reporting person told police he approached the subject to inquire about purchasing narcotics. The subject told the victim he could get the narcotics and would need a ride to the location. The two of them got into the victim’s 2016 white Toyota Corolla and headed to an unknown location on Chef Menteur Highway. However, the victim was unable to get narcotics from that location.
The subject then suggested another location to purchase narcotics. The subject led the victim to the intersection of McFarland and Hiawatha streets and demanded the victim give him money, before attempting to stop the vehicle by moving the gear shift to park. The victim then complied with the subject’s demands, gave him the money and exited the vehicle, at which time the subject collected the money, moved to the driver’s seat and fled the location.
Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact Third District detectives at 504-658-6030. Citizens with information that can help solve crimes are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
