This year’s crime trends around Mid-City are similar to last year’s, but last week officers with the Mid-City Security District said they were working on ways to bring those numbers down.
Auto thefts in September peaked at 10, mostly due to people leaving their doors unlocked or cars running. Mid-City residents reported seven vehicle burglaries last month, but only one incident featured any evidence of an actual break-in, according to statistics from the New Orleans Police Department.
