Maroon Staff

During Krewe Du Vieux some parade-goers, desperate for parking spots, were scammed out of their money, according to WWL-TV.

A group of men posed as owners of a private lot, ushered in cars and charged for the right to park. The car owners came back after the parade to find their cars had been towed. NOPD is currently investigating the case.
