Looters Arrested Stealing From Oklahoma Tornado Victims’ Homes
Two men got busted allegedly stealing from those who already lost everything.
Homeowners in tornado-ravaged Moore, Okla. found the suspects, both in their 20s, standing in the rubble of their home peering into their medicine cabinets.
The strange men claimed they were looking for survivors but the residents say they called the police after finding their possessions in the suspects’ pockets.
Responding police found a bag filled with belongings from other devastated homes in the neighborhood, reported local station KWTV.
Police arrested the suspects, who have not been identified, at the scene at S.W. Seventh St. and Kings Manor.
The neighborhood is still in shambles after a tornado roared through Monday afternoon, killing at least 24 people.
The Oklahoma Insurance Department estimates that the state suffered about $2 billion in preliminary damage – double an earlier figure.
These suspected raiders, however, are not the only people allegedly capitalizing on the city’s collective suffering.
KFOR reports that the National Guard was called to the devastated Moore Medical Center, located directly in the tornado’s warpath, after looters were sighted.
To offset looting, the Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner is developing a 90-day badge system that will prohibit non-residents from entering damaged neighborhoods.
