Four women wanted for kidnapping in New Orleans, posing as Uber
NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Police Department is searching for a woman who posed as an Uber driver, along with three others involved, who kidnapped a woman in New Orleans.
The woman told police that around 5 a.m., a four-door white vehicle, approached her at the intersection of Conti and Dauphine streets. She stated that the driver posed as an Uber driver and lured the woman into the vehicle.
There were four women total in the vehicle who took the woman's phone and forced her to purchase items and withdraw money from ATMs. The women also took the woman's credit cards and her Social Security card.
After the woman asked to get out of the vehicle several times, the suspects told the woman that she would be taken to her hotel if she obeyed their demands. The victim did so and was able to exit the vehicle.
