NEW ORLEANS —
Many New Orleans residents have reported that their cars have been broken into many times in recent weeks.
A new report by the Metropolitan Crime Commission shows there has been a substantial increase in both car thefts and burglaries in Lakeview and Gentilly.
The MCC released its five-year crime report on Thursday showing that almost half of all major violent crimes happen in the Fifth and Seventh Districts.
This includes New Orleans East, the 9th Ward, Bywater, and Marigny.
