Suspects are caught on camera walking out of a shoe store with stolen merchandise during Hurricane Irma
Fort Lauderdale, Florida – 9 people were arrested by Fort Lauderdale police caught by local news cameras looting a Fort Lauderdale business during Hurricane Irma.
The group can be seen breaking into Simon’s Sportswear on Sunrise Blvd. and Powerline Road. They broke the front window and walked in and walked out with boxes of shoes.
Just hours later the Fort Lauderdale Police announced that the criminals seen in the video were arrested.
Going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice,” Fort Lauderdale police Chief Rick Maglione said. “Stay home and look after your loved once and be thankful they are all safe.”
The adult suspects were identified as Kenneth Pinkney, Zara Dumornay, Tyrell Pratt, Teonhki Robinson, Michael Brown and Rossano Henry Jr. They face the charge of Burglary during a natural disaster.
