The sheriff of a North Carolina county hit by Florence says four men are charged with break-ins that happened after residents evacuated.
Brunswick County Sheriff John Ingram tells news outlets the break-ins happened Thursday. He says two men are charged with possession of burglary tools and breaking and entering of a convenience store in Leland. Two other men are charged with breaking or entering of a motor vehicle.
Ingram says deputies will do everything they can to lock up people who “prey upon the citizens of Brunswick County.”
Ingram says officials made sure ahead of time to have “adequate (jail) space for anybody that wanted to try that.”
