Cops warn Hurricane Irma looters they're making 'fairly bad life choice'

Recommended Posts

Authorities in Florida warned residents that "going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice" following a series of burglary arrests as Hurricane Irma was slamming the state with heavy rains and winds.

 

Police in Fort Lauderdale said nine were arrested in connection to a sportswear store burglary. The group, which was filmed by a local news staton, allegedly stole sneakers.

 
Police departments across the state warned residents for days ahead of Hurricane Irma's landfall not to loot.

 

Similar warnings were issued by other police departments across the state. “Any looters who come to Pembroke Pines will be greeted by our officers. Choose wisely and stay home,” wrote the Pembroke Pines Police Department.

 

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office, meanwhile, wrote: “ATTENTION LOOTERS; Every incident will be investigated. Evidence collected will be used to pursue charges after the fact.”

 

The warning came hours after a Broward deputy shot a 17-year-old burglary suspect in Weston, Fla. The out-of-town homeowners spotted a burglary in progress on their home security cameras and called the Broward Sheriff’s Office, authorities said.

 

Dylan Lemon of Weston was shot outside the home about 3 a.m. Sunday, officials said. He went to the hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. He and his alleged accomplice Jean Coello, 17, also of Weston, were charged with burglary and grand theft.

Many cops make bad life choices too  and end up in jail . They all think there above the law  the scary thing is all the cops who don't get caught the ones IA never catches before they retire.  It took a storm too bring these looters  out but  for  many crooked cops crime goes on 24/7.

I hate having my property stolen.  So I understand people not wanting their property looted.
