Thieves commit 25 acts of looting in Miami during Hurricane Irma

According to the Miami-Dade Police Department, 28 people have been arrested for burglary.

On Monday, six men were arrested for looting at the Midtown Miami shopping complex, where they stole items such as shoes, bags, and laptops.

They posted a photo of a group of accused looters to their Twitter page as the city and rest of Florida dealt with the trauma of Hurricane Irma.

City officials lifted a 7 p.m. hurricane curfew Tuesday, but officers will be making patrols 24 hours a day to prevent any further thefts, they said. Police have also received additional reports of looting in the city.

Fort Lauderdale police Chief Rick Maglione urged residents to stay indoors as the storm approached and advised against any criminal activity.

In Fort Lauderdale, nine people were arrested after a WPLG news crew recorded a group ransacking a sportswear shop.

Some of the lotting suspects were caught red-handed, police said.

Maglione called the idea of stealing sneakers during a hurricane "a fairly bad life choice". Police said in the video they believe the people in the news footage are the same ones they arrested.

The same kind of warning has been issued by the several police departments from all over the state.

Between 100 and 120 inmates were said to have escape a prison on the Virgin Islands after the building was partially destroyed by Irma. French and Dutch police have sent extra officers and military personnel to the small island of St. Martin to help.
