The NOPD is looking to identify and locate a man for his involvement in an armed robbery of a Shell gas station (via NOPD).

The New Orleans Police Department is searching for a man involved in the armed robbery of a Shell gas station on Saturday.

At around 4:38 a.m., an unknown white male was seen entering the store in the 4700 block of Canal Street.
