Weary Breezy Point Sandy Victims Thanksgiving Dinner Return Finds Homes Looted

It was very nice of relatives to invite friends and family over to their homes for thanksgiving dinner, after-all, it was these folks hardest hit by the ravages of superstorm Sandy. Now try and imagine what it must’ve been like for storm victims to return to their homes to discover they had been looted…

A section of Queens known as Breezy Point, one of the hardest hit areas, fell victim to some unscrupulous looters during this Thanksgiving holiday. The crooks took it upon themselves to clean out several people’s homes of their valuables as the they enjoyed their Thanksgiving meal with family and friends.

The opportunists ended up with a $25,000 coin collection, jewelry, watches and change jars, anything they could get their grubby little hands on.

Robert Bainbridge says looters took his change jar that contained about $400. He says he’s trying to repair his flooded home and the theft “adds insult to injury.”

There have been at least 14 home break-ins in Breezy Point from Nov. 12 to Nov. 18. There were none during the same period last year.

With any natural disaster you get opportunists… At least 9 already arrested in the Sandy aftermath.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Nine people have been arrested for allegedly stealing from businesses near the Rockaways in Queens during and after Superstorm Sandy.

Three people were arrested at a gas station, three at a Radio Shack, and two at a clothing store.

The Rockaway Peninsula was severely damaged by flooding and violent winds during the storm. Surges left Rockaway Beach inundated, and an out-of-control six-alarm fire destroyed more than 80 homes in the Breezy Point section of the peninsula Monday night.

The area was in the Evacuation Zone A delineated by Mayor Michael Bloomberg over the weekend. But many residents did not evacuate.

The theft incidents happened between Monday and Tuesday.
