The Hurricane Florence looting has begun

The Hurricane Florence looting has begun

 

 

 

Looters raided shops, homes and cars as Hurricane Florence slammed into North Carolina, according to a report Friday.

At least four crooks were busted near Wilmington, where the powerful storm forced residents to evacuate — creating a looter paradise of empty buildings, local cops told WWAY News.

“Naturally, you’ll have individuals that will try to look for opportunities to prey upon people when they are at their most vulnerable,” Brunswick County Sheriff John Ingram told the outlet.

“In this situation, we’ve had a lot of people that have evacuated their homes and businesses … and we have already seen that through the night,” he said.

One of the thieves busted into a mini-mart in Leland and led cops on a chase before he was arrested Thursday night.

Dashaun Smith, 25, and Brandon Bellamy, 30, were charged with possession of burglary tools along with breaking into Tommy’s Mini Mart in Leland, according to the outlet. They are both being held on a $20,000 bond.

Devin Harris, 21, and Justice Harris, 18, were both charged with breaking and entering a motor vehicle. They are both being held on a $5,000 bond, according to WWAY News.

Other looters, who were not named, were caught breaking into private homes, police said.

Hurricane Florence hit land Friday morning, just east of Wilmington — pounding the area with life-threatening wind and rain.
