“It was complete lawlessness,” said Ron Troyano, owner of Joann’s Discount Wine and Liquors on Mermaid Ave.
He said looters used tools to bust through his steel security gates around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The thieves then shattered his storefront and helped themselves to thousands of dollars worth of top shelf liquor, he said.
“They pried open the gate, broke the glass and went straight for the Hennessy and Grey Goose,” he said.
Police got a measure of control around 4 p.m. Tuesday, but two cops positioned outside Joann’s into the night failed to stop more looters from sneaking in through the roof, Troyano told The News.
In a way he is lucky, they only took booze. They could have gone with torching the place and endangering everybody in the neighborhood.
Looting is a sick behavior that needs to be punished by immediate law enforcement action….wait…. never mind.
Then again, you can try the true & tried method we hicks have down here.
Nah…they’ll go for the “civilized” method of being a victim and give more power to Pasha Bloomberg.
