New Orleans Man Uses Dating App to Meet Woman, Then Steals Her Wallet
There's the old adage about love at first sight. But the following story didn't involve that, rather, more like theft at first sight.
A New Orleans man is suspected of stealing a woman's wallet after they met for a "date" arranged through a dating app, according to New Orleans Police.
The victim said she met the man, who identified himself as "James", through the MeetMe app. The two decided to meet up on the afternoon of January 29th.
After they met up, they walked to a McDonald's for food. They later walked to a bus stop where "James" placed his hands into the victim's pocket, which the victim allowed so he could keep warm.
"James" then took off with the woman's wallet in hand.
Anyone with information on the theft or the whereabouts/identity of “James” is asked to call the NOPD 4th District at 504-658-6040 or call Crimestoppers anonymously at 504-822-1111.
