A county sheriff in Texas issued a stern warning to looters taking advantage of the situation that they could leave his county in a bag.
Fort Bend County sheriff Troy Nehls made his warning during an interview with Fox News Friday. “My caution to the looters out there, those that want to rob our people that are suffering: You may want to stay out of Fort Bend County.”
“Because there’s a possibility you could leave this county in a bag,” he adds.
Nehls explained that many of the area’s residents are armed and believe in the 2nd Amendment.
He said that his county experienced very little of the looting that is seen in other places in Texas during the hurricane.
“I’ve heard some horrific stories in Harris County and others, and I’ll tell you right now the residents of Fort Bend County, they support the 2nd Amendment, Nehls said.” “Many of them are armed.”
The Daily Caller reports:
That is what Texas is all about. A sheriff with a massive cowboy hat on national television telling the criminals to stay away from his people or it could cost them their lives.
It doesn’t get much more blunt and straight forward than that. If criminals want to loot in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, I wouldn’t suggest doing it anywhere near Nehls, his deputies or the people who live in his county. They mean business.
