The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office has issued an arrest warrant for a New Orleans man and named another man a person of interest in connection with a recent armed robbery in Arabi, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

Mitchell Craft, 39, of the 200 block of Maumus Street in New Orleans, is wanted in connection with the armed robbery which occurred Sept. 11 on Lebeau Street in Arabi.

Another man has been named a person of interest in the incident and is wanted for questioning. He is a black male with a slender build and short, cropped hair.

The Sheriff’s Office is seeking assistance from the public in locating Craft and identifying the person of interest.

On Sept. 11, shortly before midnight, Sheriff Pohlmann said, deputies responded to a call for service in reference to an armed robbery that occurred in the 1000 block of Lebeau Street.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they were met by a male victim who said he was followed by a man, later identified as Craft, from a business in Kenner to a residence on Lebeau.

The victim said Craft approached him in the driveway of the residence, brandished a weapon, and demanded he give him his money. Craft fled the scene in a dark 2021 Toyota Camry bearing Louisiana License tag 290EPR.

Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Bureau said citizens who want to share information about this incident or the whereabouts of Craft or the person of interest in this case can do so by calling the Sheriff’s Office at 504-271-2501. They also can call the Criminal Investigations Bureau’s tip hotline, 504-271-TIPS or 8477 or Crimestoppers GNO at 504-822-1111. Callers can leave a detailed message, and either choose to provide their contact information, or remain anonymous, and may be eligible for a cash reward from Crimestoppers.
