Looting Already Starts in Florida as Irma Lands on the Coast [VIDEO]

Fort Lauderdale, FL., has already seen incidents of looting. It seems that the temptation to steal was greater than these criminals’ own concern for their personal safety.

Reporters from Local 10 news network caught a group of people breaking into a local sportswear store on Sunrise Blvd. and Powerline Road.

There were approximately 9 people that committed the crime, breaking into the entrance window. The video below captures them walking in and running out of the store with arms full of stolen merchandise.

In the same are a Footlocker was robbed, also. It is not known if there is any connection between the two incidents

Pembroke Pines Police Department also tweeted: “Any looters who come to Pembroke Pines will be greeted by our officers. Choose wisely and stay home.”
