Looters busted in Fort Lauderdale during 'Irma'

Police in Fort Lauderdale arrested nine people caught looting a store in the middle of Hurricane Irma's heavy rain and winds.

Local 10 abc caught the looters taking items from a Foot Locker and from Cash American Pawn store. Fort Lauderdale police Chief Rick Maglione said:

"Going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice. Stay home and look after your loved once and be thankful they are all safe."

Six adults and three teenagers were arrested:

  • Kenneth Pinkney
  • Zara Dumornay
  • Tyrell Pratt
  • Teonhki Robinson
  • Michael Brown
  • Rossano Henry Jr.

They all face charges of burglary during a natural disaster. Immediately after Local 10's report, The Broward Sheriff's Office posted this to Twitter:

"ATTENTION LOOTERS; Every incident will be investigated. Evidence collected will be used to pursue charges after the fact."

The Pembroke Pines Police Department also put out a warning:

"Any looters who come to Pembroke Pines will be greeted by our officers. Choose wisely and stay home."
