New York City Hurricane Sandy Victims’ Homes Looted over Thanksgiving Holiday
I guess there really is no honor among thieves …
As if the victims of Hurricane Sandy have not gone through and lost enough. Now it is being reported that storm victims in New York City and some of the most devastated areas have had their homes looted as well over Thanksgiving. One of the areas reporting looting is the Breezy Point section of Queens, NY that was one of the most devastated areas where hundreds of people lost their homes. Now we learn that others were robbed and looted on Wednesday or Thursday when many residents were away for the holiday.
Some residents of a New York City neighborhood that suffered fire and flooding during Superstorm Sandy say thieves looted their damaged houses over Thanksgiving.
The New York Post reports that thieves struck at least three homes in the Breezy Point section of Queens.
The Post reports that there were 14 home break-ins in Breezy Point from Nov. 12 to Nov. 18. There were none during the same period last year.
