FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Despite dangerous winds and heavy rain from Hurricane Irma, several looting incidents have been reported in Fort Lauderdale. Local 10 cameras caught a group breaking into the Simon’s Sportswear on Sunrise Blvd. and Powerline Road.
Looting begins in Florida.

Several incidents have already been reported? These people didn’t even wait until the storm was over! They could have taken food or cases of water to survive but they took SHOES!

Shame on them!
LOOTING BEGINS MID-STORM
The group of about 8-9 people broke through the front window and were seen walking in and then walking out with stolen items.
A group then began looting a Footlocker in the same area. It’s not known whether the groups were the same.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office immediately reacted to Local 10’s report, tweeting “ATTENTION LOOTERS; Every incident will be investigated. Evidence collected will be used to pursue charges after the fact.”
Meanwhile, the Pembroke Pines Police Department issued a stern warning, tweeting “Any looters who come to Pembroke Pines will be greeted by our officers. Choose wisely and stay home.”
South Florida law enforcement officials promised to police the streets to prevent looting, but with unsafe winds currently pummeling the region, it’s not known if units are currently on patrol.

The Houston Police Chief tweeted out that looters would be arrested:
Some people thought they’d loot and find themselves in jail thanks to the men and women of @houstonpolice.

THE POLICE SHOULD SEND OUT A SHOOT ON SIGHT WHEN THEY SEE LOOTING…This will only get worse as time goes on.
