Pair accused of trying to steal utility pole after Hurricane Irma

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office in Florida said it caught two men trying to make off with a massive utility pole Wednesday morning.

It tweeted a picture of the two men, seated on a curb in handcuffs. In the background, there is an SUV with a giant pole strapped to the roof.

Multiple police departments in Florida have warned citizens about using the hurricane as an opportunity to commit crimes.

In Miami, police posted a photo of a jail cell full of people they say were caught looting.
