REDDING (KPIX) – As if the Carr Fire evacuees don’t have enough to worry about, now there are concerns about looting.

Officers patrolled one burned out neighborhood, looking for looters, Friday night.

UPDATE: Five Arrested On Suspicion Of Entering Evacuated Areas Of Redding

About 260 National Guard soldiers were also providing security, according to Shasta County Sheriff’s Department.

Saturday, Redding police said several would-be thieves have been arrested.


“We’re seeing it several reports a day of people in neighborhoods, people driving through neighborhoods going around our roadblocks, shouldering doors, getting into residences that quite, maybe not, haven’t been burnt, and so they are looking to steal items from the residence,” said Redding Police Chief Roger Moore.

Moore lost his own home in the fire, as did two of his fellow officers.

  1. Shoot to kill, plain and simple.

    Blacks. Or…. Mexicans… AS USUAL.

    If you must evacuate (and they cannot make you evacuate, even if they claim it’s “mandatory” you do not have to), they will not allow you back once you leave…. In that case, you MUST break their blockade and get to your property. You will be looted…

    The police are NOT your friend.

      Are you kidding? This is CALIFORNIA…

  3. Shoot the noggs dead.
    Hang the carcass on the front lawn.

  4. I bet they are white heterosexual Christian men doing it.

    Start putting up signs “Looters will be shot” then enforce it. What a great deterant.

  6. Well.. you guys wanted the illegal immigrants…so feed them and let them steal your stuff 🙂

  7. “Anti-racists” say there’s a RACE problem. They say it’ll be solved when non-Whites pour into ALL & ONLY White nations and “assimilate” to get a brown mixture.

    They say only White nations have this RACE problem; they say non-White nations are fine.

    If I object to my own genocide these “anti-racists” say I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they’re anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

    Looters when caught should be put in public stockcades.

  9. Jesus, even the cops in California sound like soy boys

  10. tonyome says:

    “Looters”…in other words, illegal immigrants and blacks.

  11. Mandatory sentence on the fire line to help fight the fire, then prison after that.

  12. Texas, 1950’s and 60’s, oncoming hurricane, businesses routinely posted “Looters will be shot”. Guess what??? No looting !

  13. No doubt the looters are blacks and illegal immigrants. I’d say that the Home Owners should shoot to kill them. But wait, it is California and is it not legal for law biding citizens there to own a firearm ? ILaw Enforcement surley will not for they may be charged with using undue lethal force and charged with murder followed by a civil lawsuit. hahahahahahahahahahahahaha …

  14. Looters shot on sight, no questions asked!

  15. Mexicans & blacks? So you don’t think the white trash meth heads are a problem then.
