ESTACADA, Ore. — Oregon residents stressed out from the wildfires that are devastating the state have a message for potential looters: Don’t try it.
Several signs in Clackamas County went straight to the point, and residents under evacuation levels due to the Riverside Fire did not mince words, KPTV reported.
“Looters will be shot” and “Home and armed, U loot, we shoot” were two of the signs that were seen, the television station reported.
Towns including Colton and Estacada are under Level 3 evacuation orders, meaning they had to vacate their homes, according to KPTV.
“We won’t call your family. Your body will never be found,” another sign read, followed by an emphatic “Bang, bang” phrase drawn in red ink, the television station reported.
Clackamas County deputies confirmed Saturday they have made two theft-related arrests in the fire zones, according to KPTV.
