Ft. Lauderdale Police ARREST 9 LOOTERS Caught on Video: “Going to Prison Over a Pair of Sneakers is a Fairly Bad Life Choice” (Video)

As Hurricane Irma battered Florida, a WPLG camera crew caught looters breaking into stores in Fort Lauderdale Sunday and making off with everything they could carry.

The Pembroke Pines Police Department had issued a stern warning, tweeting “Any looters who come to Pembroke Pines will be greeted by our officers. Choose wisely and stay home.”

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.”

NY Post reports:

Fort Lauderdale cops busted nine people caught on camera looting a Florida shoe store amid the chaos of Hurricane Irma on Sunday.

The arrests came after local TV station WPLG recorded the crooks entering the Simon’s Sportswear shop on West Sunrise Boulevard through a broken window and running off with merchandise.

The suspects also targeted the nearby CashAmerica pawn shop, according to the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.

“Going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice,” Police Chief Rick Maglione said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“Stay home and look after your loved ones and be thankful they are safe.”

Earlier in the day, the department posted mug shots of two men charged in other hurricane-related crimes.

“Can’t say we didn’t warn you…28 YOs Ryan Cook & Max Saintvil each face 6 counts of burglary from overnight #HurricaneIrma,” the department tweeted.
