An in-car camera on Dec. 11 allegedly captured the image of a suspect burglarizing a vehicle on Saint Ann Street just before walking away with the camera, the New Orleans Police Department said.

The alleged burglary took place approximately 1:30 a.m. in the 1000 block of Saint Ann St., the NOPD said.

A camera mounted inside the car allegedly took a photograph the suspect entering the vehicle and immediately uploaded the image to the victim, the NOPD said.

The suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction, the NOPD said.

The NOPD released the surveillance photo of the suspect, who is pictured above.
