Authorities in Florida warned residents that “going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice” following a series of burglary arrests as Hurricane Irma was slamming the state with heavy rains and winds.
Police in Fort Lauderdale said nine were arrested in connection to a sportswear store burglary. The group, which was filmed by a local news staton, allegedly stole sneakers.
Police Chief Rick Maglione warned people in the statement that “Going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice” and residents should instead “Stay home and look after your loved ones and be thankful they are all safe.”
The Miami-Dade Police Department also said on Twitter that there were 28 arrests for looting.
