WATCH: The looting has already begun in Fort Lauderdale

Posted: Updated:

(MEREDITH) -- Fort Lauderdale Police say they have arrested nine looters who targeted a CashAmerica Pawn & Simon's. 

"Going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice," said Fort Lauderdale police chief Rick Maglione. "Stay home and look after your loved once and be thankful they are all safe."

The Broward Sheriff's Office immediately reacted to Local 10's report, tweeting "ATTENTION LOOTERS; Every incident will be investigated. Evidence collected will be used to pursue charges after the fact."

WPLG-TV earlier tweeted footage of looters breaking into stores and making off with stolen goods.

The Broward County sheriff is already aware of the situation and tweeted out a message addressing the looters directly, promising that every incident will be investigated.
