A video shows looters stealing from stores in Fort Lauderdale during Hurricane Irma.

Video shot by ABC 10 News in Fort Lauderdale shows a group of looters stealing from a store in broad daylight during Hurricane Irma.

The video, shot while dangerous winds and heavy rain fell, shows the stores’ window shattered and a group of hooded individuals entering and leaving the store with shoe boxes.

Watch the video below:


That wasn’t the only incident of looting in the area, however. WPLG Miami Reporter Sanela Sabovic caught another group of people looting a Foot Locker store on Sunrise Blvd.

A short while later, Fort Lauderdale City Manager Lee Feldman tweeted a photo of a looter being arrested by police. He warned that those caught will be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent.

The looting came just as Fort Lauderdale started to feel the effect of Irma, which made landfall in many parts of Florida on Sunday morning.
