The City of Houston and surrounding counties are not playing around with looters taking advantage of the massive floods caused by Harvey. People displaced or harmed in this storm are not going to be easy prey, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said, noting that burglarizing a home in a disaster area could carry a life sentence under Texas law. Prosecutors said at least 14 suspected looters were arrested, and Brazoria County announced a curfew in mandatory-evacuation areas for Tuesday night. Anyone who tries to take advantage of this storm to break into homes or businesses should know that they are going to feel the full weight of the law, Ogg said. Offenders will be processed around the clock without delay. The Montgomery County District Attorney's officeposted a warning on Monday that any looters, thieves or burglars caught victimizing area residents would be arrested and served up mandatory jail time, according to the Houston Chronicle. (District Attorney Brett) Ligon announced today that his office will seek prison or jail time in each and every forthcoming case where the defendant stands charged with theft (looting), burglary, robbery, or any similar crime committed during Hurricane Harvey, the DA's office posted on Facebook. Leniency and probation will be off the table for these offenses committed during this time. According to Montgomery County officials, state law allows for enhanced punishment ranges for certain offenses committed during a declared natural disaster event. Ligon also commented on the need to enforce the law.
