Looter Arrested

ALAMEDA, Calif. (KCBS)- Police in Alameda say they have arrested a man on charges of hawking items taken during the looting episode in Oakland following the Johannes Mehserle verdict.

According to the Bay Area News Group, 43-year-old Andrew Pedro Jackson was spotted selling t-shirts and shoes on Webster Street Thursday night.

While questioning Jackson, officers noticed something peculiar: All the shoes he was selling were for the left foot. Upon closer inspection, they found price tags from the Foot Locker Store on Broadway in Oakland.

Dozens of people broke the windows of that store just a few hours earlier and made off with merchandise.
