Man, 2 juveniles burglarize gas station, help themselves to beer, cigars, cigarettes

A West Palm Beach man and two underage accomplices were arrested Monday after they were caught looting at a Palm Beach County gas station that was closed because of Hurricane Irma, deputies said.

Austin Johnson, 23, faces charges of burglary to an unoccupied structure during a state of emergency and grand theft.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said deputies were called to a burglary at a Shell gas station in the 2900 block of Military Trail. When deputies arrived, they found the suspects helping themselves to cartons of cigarettes, packs of cigars and cases of beer.

All three suspects were arrested. Johnson was booked into the main county jail, while the others were booked into the juvenile jail.

460 inmates moved from Florida Keys jail ahead of Hurricane Irma

Hundreds of inmates were moved from a Florida Keys jail early Saturday amid concerns about Hurricane Irma.

Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay said 460 inmates were moved from the main jail on Stock Island to a facility in Palm Beach County.

“Moving this many inmates this quickly is a tough job,” Ramsay said. “Our staff was up to the challenge. They quickly formulated plans to make the move safely, were able to procure buses for the transport and got on the road without incident.”

Although the jail is a Category 5-rated building, Ramsay felt it was better to be safe than sorry because of the changing path of Irma, which was forecast to make landfall somewhere in the lower Keys.

The move took place before dawn Saturday. Most of the corrections deputies traveled with the inmates to assist the hosting facility in Palm Beach County with the additional workload.
