The city of Houston is facing catastrophic flooding, which looters see as an opportunity. Video of looting has been uploaded to social media (video below.)
Houston PD Chief Art Acevedo has announced that Houston PD officers have arrested looters, but it’s not clear if the arrested looters are related to the people looting in the video.
The video, uploaded by Isabel Torres, shows people walking back and forth between vehicles and stores that have had the front doors broken in. Two young males could be seen walking away with TVs over their heads.
The exact location of the looting is not clear, but some of it is taking place in a Family Dollar store.
