Miami Police Warn Looters To #StayInside In FB Post”

As the fury of Hurricane Irma approached Florida on Saturday into Sunday, some thugs thought they could use it as an opportunity to steal and get off scot free.

WPLG cameras caught the group looting outside Simon's Sportswear in Fort Lauderdale. Police later arrested the group, including six adults and three teens, for burglary during a natural disaster.

Since Irma began bearing down on the state late last week, authorities have been warning any would-be looters against taking advantage of the situation. Watch as these ppl steal shoes from the Foot Locker on Sunrise Blvd. Maglione called the idea of stealing sneakers during a hurricane "a fairly bad life choice". Miami PD did blur out the accused looters' faces.

"Evidence collected will be used to pursue charges after the fact".

In another incident, a teenager was shot and another arrested, after they attempted to burglarize in a home in Weston, Florida, NBC 6 reported.
