NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans police say someone stole a car from the city’s juvenile detention center parking lot.

A news release emailed Wednesday says the owner told police she’d left the red Pontiac Grand Prix unlocked about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the lot for the New Orleans Juvenile Justice Center.

She returned about 90 minutes later and it was gone.

Police say the car is a 2007 model with Louisiana license plate 316BYV.

Police are asking anyone with information about the theft to call the Third District detectives’ office.
