BRONX -- A mom and pop shop run by a minority family for 14 years was destroyed in minutes by looters who took advantage of George Floyd protests for their own personal causes and criminal activity.
Lucy Yang of ABC7NY reports:
It took the Rodriguez family 14 years to build their successful mom-and-pop pharmacy in the Bronx. But it only took looters minutes to ravage everything they worked so hard to build.
Surveillance video shows a metal gate breeched at 12:36 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
In just a matter of seconds, the glass door is shattered and looters storm Alico Pharmacy on Jerome Avenue.
"I felt so powerless," store owner Andy Rodriguez said. "Watching on cell phone. You can't do anything."
The video shows someone stuffing their pockets, t-shirts and backpacks. Others looters filled baskets.
One man found garbage bags in the basement, while another stopped for a quick drink.
The looters struck gold when they got into the narcotics cabinet, which they wiped clean.
Many of the shelves were filled with prescription medications for heart patients, cancer patients and people who desperately need their medicine.
The surveillance video also shows several people try to smash the cash register.
