NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say a man carrying his family's Super Bowl tickets in his rear pants pocket lost them to a pickpocket as he left Harrah's Casino.
Investigators say a man in a jogging suit and dark knit cap followed the family as it left the casino near the French Quarter just before 11 p.m. on Saturday.
They say the suspect walked up behind the unidentified victim and took an envelope containing seven Super Bowl tickets.
Police said the suspect met four other men and two women on nearby Canal Street and the group left the scene.
Investigators say they have surveillance video of the alleged pickpocket.
