Suspect Arrested Again for Selling Nitrous Oxide Balloons
On May 5th, at about 4am, Eighth District Narcotics Detectives had the occasion to arrest 50-year-old Dale Fitzpatrick for possession with the intent to distribute nitrous oxide. Detectives observed Fitzpatrick in the 500 block of Mandeville, exiting the same vehicle from his arrest on May 1st, with a tank believed to be filled with nitrous oxide. He entered a residence with the tank and then exited the location with the tank and returned back to the vehicle.
Fitzpatrick was detained; and during the course of the investigation, detectives obtained a search warrant for the vehicle. Detectives located 14 additional tanks of nitrous oxide and several balloons containing nitrous oxide inside of the vehicle. Fitzpatrick was subsequently booked with the above mentioned charges.
Previous Arrest Case:
On May 1st, at about 1am, detectives responded to a call for service in the 500 block of Frenchman Street in regards to a suspect selling balloons filled with nitrous oxide. Upon arrival, detectives located the suspect, who was accepting cash for balloons that he filled with nitrous oxide from a tank. The suspect, 50-year-old Dale Fitzpatrick, was then arrested and booked accordingly.
Shortly before 4am, detectives located another individual, 31-year-old Grant McDaniel, engaged in the above mentioned behavior, in the 500 block of Frenchman Street.
During the course of the investigations, detectives learned both suspects were working together; they obtained a search warrant for their vehicle and located 11 more tanks containing nitrous oxide.
Fitzpatrick and McDaniel were booked with distribution of a dangerous chemical (nitrous oxide) and possession with the intent to distribute a dangerous chemical (nitrous oxide).
Additionally, on April 25th, Fitzpatrick was issued a summons for the same violation and one tank was confiscated.

8th District Extends Gratitude for Donation of New CVSA Equipment and Training
The 8th District has recently received the software and necessary training for a Computer Voice Stress Analysis (CVSA) system; a direct result of the generosity of citizens and businesses of the 8th District.
The National World War II Museum hosts a Warehouse District Neighborhood Night Out Against Crime event each year, along with co-sponsors the Downtown Development District and the Warehouse District Business Association. The event features food and drink sales, a silent auction and raffles, from which all proceeds are used to purchase a crime-fighting item of need for the exclusive use the NOPD’s 8th District, through their non-profit arm, COPS 8. In recent years, generated funds provided two patrol bicycles and a computerized composite sketch system, all currently in use by the 8th District.
For 2013, a computer voice stress analysis (CVSA) system was targeted as the item of need, along with training in the use of the system - with a price tag of nearly $9,000. In response to that request, the Warehouse District Neighborhood Night Out Against Crime event produced revenues totaling $4,324.50. The Downtown Development District donated $1,000 and a Silent Donor wrote a check for $3,200, for a grand total of $8,524.50.
Detectives completed training on the system in April.
This year’s National Night Out Against Crime will be celebrated on Tuesday, October 14, 2014.

Register Your Surveillance Cameras with the NOPD
SafeCam NOLA is a NOPD initiative to enlist the help of community members in the fight against crime. Citizen-provided security camera footage is increasingly becoming an invaluable asset to NOPD, helping establish leads and identify perpetrators. By voluntarily registering your contact information with NOPD, detectives will know how to reach you if a crime occurs in the vicinity of your property.
Registering your information does not provide NOPD with direct access to your camera. NOPD will only contact you if they believe your camera could contain evidence relevant to a criminal investigation. Evidence provided by your camera could mean the difference between bringing a perpetrator to justice versus leaving a crime unsolved.
--To register your surveillance camera(s), visit: http://safecamnola.com/.
