NEW ORLEANS — Police shared photos of six suspects Thursday wanted in connection with the looting of an Algiers business the day after Hurricane Ida made landfall.

Investigators with the New Orleans Police Department asked the public for help naming the suspects when they released the photos.

According to police, around 10:30 a.m. on Aug. 30, NOPD officers were sent to a business in the 3600 block of MacArthur Boulevard to respond to reports of a burglary.

The looting may have happened in the MacArthur Shopping Center, near MacArthur Boulevard and General De Gaulle Drive.

When officers arrived, they found the glass in the business' side door broken, and open.

Inventory was missing, investigators said.
