NEW ORLEANS, LA (WDSU) — Perhaps in an effort to get more views, and in essence help solve crimes, the New Orleans Police Department Eighth District released surveillance video with a little flare to keep viewers' attention.
The surveillance video relates to a laptop theft in the Marigny, which happened on Nov. 6, as the video will let you know via the credits and title card.
The video begins with a "Universal Studios" type of logo, but instead, it's the 8th District DIU.
With a theatrical theme akin to a James Bond movie, the video come packed with a suspenseful soundtrack and Hollywood-like title cards that flashed across the screen with "Mission: Impossible"-like music.
However, the theft was anything but mission impossible.
The theft happened in the 2000 block of Burgundy Street.
Further details on the theft weren't released, but the surveillance video speaks for itself.
The thief appears in the video to be a Caucasian man with long, dark hair. He was wearing a red jacket with yellow shirt underneath, a baseball cap and jeans.
Anyone with information is asked to call Eighth District Detecive Jaime Roach at 504-658-6704 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
