 On Tuesday, February 14th, 2017, at 10:52 a.m., the Kenner Police Department responded to a burglary in progress in the 3200 block of Ole Miss Drive, in Kenner.  Upon officers’ arrival, it was learned that two suspects had forced entry into the 76-year-old female victim’s residence.  Entry was made through a side window of the residence.  As the two suspects began to rummage through property they were confronted by the victim and immediately fled the residence, utilizing the canal bank to make good their escape.

 February 14, 2017           3200 block of Ole Miss Drive 

 In each of the above residential burglaries, computers, gaming devices, prescriptions, and money was taken during the burglaries.  In addition, entry was made through a rear or side window of the residence.
