Looters Targeting Powerless Homes Following Hurricane Michael: Police

Local authorities say that armed looters are targeting homes and businesses that remain without electricity following Hurricane Michael.

Sheriff's Maj. Jimmy Stanford said deputies have arrested about 10 looters each night since Florida's Bay County took a direct hit from the strong Category 4 storm last Wednesday. 

In some parts of the county, residents have spray-painted signs warning that "looters will be shot."

Nearly 137,000 Florida customers remain without power in an 11-county region that stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to the Georgia border, according to information compiled by state emergency management officials.
