An arrest warrant has been issued for Ralph Roberts, B/M, 38, whose last known address is 6401 Chesterfield Drive Apartment 2 in New Orleans. During the early morning hours of Saturday, August 16, 2014, a 57 year-old white female from Lafitte, was walking to her vehicle in the parking lot of a supermarket located in the 4600 block of the West Bank Expressway in Harvey when a black male suspect approached her and forcibly snatched her wallet. The suspect was seen getting into in a grey SUV and making good his escape from the parking lot. Robbery detective Marc Macaluso along with Second district follow-up officer Gerald Young developed Ralph Roberts as a suspect based on similar incidents involving a black male suspect fitting Roberts’ description, driving a grey SUV. A photographic line-up containing a photo of Roberts was shown to the victim, who made a positive identification on Roberts as the suspect who stole her property. Ralph Roberts is described as being 5’6” tall, 140 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He is also known to use the address of 313 Lafitte Street in Bridge City.

Efforts to locate and arrest Roberts at the above listed addresses has met with negative results. Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Ralph Roberts is asked to contact Detective Macaluso at 504-364-5300 or CRIMESTOPPERS.
