Armed gunmen rob man inside Museum District home

Police are looking for a group of gunmen who made their way into a home in the Museum District and robbed two men at gunpoint.

The crime happened just before 1 a.m. Monday and has leaders with the Museum District's Neighborhood Association speaking out. It's not the kind of news neighbors here are used to hearing.

"We don't see very many crimes at all in the Museum District," said Zoe Ann Green with the Museum District Association.

Police say several armed men made their way into the home in the 2800 block of West Grace Street, making off with guns, cash, and electronics belonging to two men inside. The victims told police they don't know the robbers.

"I've had stuff stolen out of my backyard, out of my car," said neighbor Tim Chiocca, who has been the victim of crime in the past couple weeks, but nothing as serious as this. "I've got good neighbors here, good neighbors there and they're all pretty quiet."

It's why the neighborhood is uniting as it always does whenever crime hits close to home.

"We're always telling our residents to be aware, look around, leave your front and back porch lights burning from dusk to dawn everyday. The criminals are going to go where they may feel they may have more opportunities to commit their crime without consequence and we don't send that message in the Museum District," Green said.

Though Chiocca lives on the same block as Monday's home invasion and robbery, Chiocca is concerned but not worried.

"Most of the time I do [feel safe]. Yes, but I know how to take care of myself," he responded.

The suspects had on gray hooded sweatshirts, black sweat pants and bandanas covering their faces. No one was hurt during this incident.  Although the victims told police they don't know who the suspects are, investigators could not confirm this incident was random.

If you have any information, contact Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.

    Deadly virus threatens local crawfish industry

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
