At least 20 people have been arrested across Florida for trying to loot empty businesses and homes that have been evacuated in preparation for Hurricane Irma.  Two people burst into an Orlando sporting store and allegedly stole guns, before facing off with SWAT in a standoff.   Shocking videos also emerged of gangs trying to break into stores and take advantage of deserted properties.   Police were called to the scene after witnesses reported a burglary at Academy Sports near the Mall at Millenia in Orlando.  Soon afterward, SWAT team officers arrived when it became clear the looters were allegedly trying to steal guns. A TV news crew also captured thieves in the act of looting a shoe store. Here is the video:
