MOORE, Okla. — Authorities say looters have come from as far away as New York and Virginia to steal from victims of last month’s tornado in Moore, Okla.

The Oklahoman reports that police arrested one man from Elmhurst, N.Y., and two from Virginia on misdemeanor complaints of stealing copper wire, scrap metal and other items from homes destroyed by the May 20 tornado. Twenty-four people were killed.

Several Moore residents were also arrested on similar misdemeanor complaints.

Residents have filed theft reports for such items as a $50,000 watch, a $13,000 watch, a $2,000 fountain pen and a $1,300 hunting camera.
