As Hurricane Irma lashed Florida with heavy winds and rain, TV station Miami News 10 WPLG captured groups of looters breaking into stores.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The police in Florida have a short and concise message for looters caught looting during Hurricane Irma. You will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. So the question you have to ask yourself is “is stealing some cash, a television or a pair of sneakers really worth the jail time?” In case you are thinking impaired, the answer to that question is “no”.

Footage from WPLG Local 10 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, shows multiple people breaking through the front window Simon’s Sportswear, entering the store and walking out with various items.

According to WPLG Local 10, the looters had also broken into other stores in the nearby area, including Footlocker and CashAmerica Pawn Store.

The group of about 8-9 people broke through the front window and were seen walking in and then walking out with stolen items.

The group then began looting a Footlocker and CashAmerica Pawn Store in the same area. Hours later, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department tweeted that they had caught the criminals.

“Going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice,” said Fort Lauderdale police chief Rick Maglione. “Stay home and look after your loved once and be thankful they are all safe.”

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. source
