A man robbed Esplanade Ave. watering hole Buffa's Lounge last night at pistol point, New Orleans police said. Travis Chapius, 25, entered the bar just after 11:40 p.m. and demanded money, police said. He made off with an undisclosed loot, but was later arrested via traffic stop at the corner of St. Claude Ave. and Pauger St., police said. Police found stolen cash strewn about the car.
“Traffic stops are a very useful tool that the NOPD uses to apprehend suspects and
solve crimes.  This was excellent and keen work well done by Officer Alfred Beechem.”
Chapius was previously arrested on "several armed robbery" charges and traffic violations, police said.
