Local 10’s cameras were rolling when a group of eight or nine people were spotted looting a sportswear store called Simon’s in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and police made arrests a few hours later.
The news outlet captured the video while driving down the street and posted it on Instagram.
“Our cameras caught people stealing from a #FortLauderdale store. #HurricaneIrma,” they reported.
But wait, there’s more. Local 10 followed up on this and said that this very same group of thieves also looted a Footlocker and a CashAmerica pawn store.
Was it worth it? The answer seems to be no, given this tweet from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department:
Nine people have been arrested.
Police Chief Rick Maglione was blunt when commenting on the arrests.
“Going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice. Stay home and look after your loved ones and be thankful they are all safe,” he said.
