Footage from WPLG Local 10 in Ft.
Images and video from southern Florida that were posted on social media on September 10, showed evidence of Irma's power - trees lashing violently back and forth in the wind, boats smashed into ruined docks, water spouts and tornados forming on the horizon, and waves of water sweeping across roads.
Later, WSVN in Miami captured another incident of groups of people breaking into a shoe store and loading vehicles up with boxes of shoes.
At least one deputy fired at Dylan Lemon outside the home, injuring him.
Thinking about looting? Ask these guys how that turned out.
Nine people have been arrested for looting in Fort Lauderdale amid the adverse weather caused by category-4 storm Hurricane Irma.
Neighboring authorities, such as the Broward County Police Department, posted on Twitter after learning of the incident, and warned that all looters caught would be investigated. "If you think you are going to take advantage of these evacuated properties, be prepared to spend the storm at the county jail".
South Florida law enforcement officials promised to police the streets to prevent looting, but with unsafe winds pummeling the region, police were discretionary to ensure the safety of officers. "Evidence collected will be used to pursue charges after the fact".
