With millions of people under evacuation advisories, thieves are taking advantage of the homes emptied during Hurricane Irma.
The Sun Sentinel documents several such cases, though the phenomenon does not appear to be widespread:
— Two 17-year-olds burglarized a home in Weston, Fla., and a deputy shot one of them, authorities said. The owners of the home were out of the country, but they spotted a burglary in progress on their home security cameras and called the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Deputies shot Dylan Lemon of Weston outside the home about 3 a.m. Sunday and arrested Jean Coello, also of Weston.
