Looters Hit Homes After Tornado

Fayetteville residents whose homes sustained heavy tornado damage have been urged to remove all valuables after burglars looted at least three homes on one storm-ravaged street.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Monday that thieves took tools, electronics, jewelry and other items late Saturday from homes with extensive damage.

Police Sgt. Christopher Joyce said officers are trying to remain visible as they patrol the area. Police also have enacted at 9 p.m. to 6 p.m. curfew because homes are most vulnerable after dark.

Joyce said police plan to work closely with community-watch organizations to try to prevent more burglaries.
