At least 32 people have been arrested across Florida for trying to loot empty businesses and homes that have been evacuated in preparation for Hurricane Irma – 28 alone in Miami, according to local authorities.

Shocking videos also emerged of gangs trying to break into stores and take advantage of deserted properties.

Soon afterward, SWAT team officers arrived when it became clear the looters were allegedly trying to steal guns.

photo -

First there was the stolen car, then the burglary.

After that came the police pursuit, the escape, the hit-and-run crash, the chase by a victim and a witness, a gun pointed at pursuers, another escape and, finally, an arrest.

Police caught up to the juvenile, whose name hasn’t been released because of his age, after he allegedly ditched the car in south Colorado Springs.

The moving crime spree began in late morning when police spotted the car about 11 a.m. near Palmer Park and North Murray boulevards. The car had been reported stolen and was linked to a burglary.

The vehicle took off when police attempted to pull it over, and got away when traffic kept officers from chasing after it.
