At least 10 people have been arrested for looting Buffalo businesses left shuttered by a blizzard that hit the upstate New York city over Christmas, leaving 37 people dead and thousands without power. Security footage shows looters smashing storefronts and leaving with televisions, computers, and other high-priced items. “These were not crimes of desperation, but crimes of opportunity to steal items from unoccupied stores during a blizzard,” said Erie County district attorney John Flynn, who pledged to prosecute the looters “to the fullest extent of the law.”
