    Polk County, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd offered some straightforward advice to residents whose homes or businesses were looted in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian: "You take your gun and you shoot him, you shoot him so that he looks like grated cheese."

    Sheriff Judd imparted that wisdom during a Friday appearance on "Fox & Friends," where he noted that a number of bad actors had jumped at the chance to capitalize on the chaos after the storm and steal from homes and businesses that had already been devastated by the high winds and dangerous flooding.


    "Well, I can tell you that I was down there with my colleague, Sheriff Marceno, this weekend. And it's total devastation, and people have a right to be safe in their homes," Judd explained. "They have a right for their property to be safe even when part of their home may be torn away. And these looters, that's unacceptable. Absolutely unacceptable."

    "I would highly suggest that if a looter breaks into your home, comes into your home while you're there to steal stuff, that you take your gun and you shoot him, you shoot him so that he looks like grated cheese," Judd continued, adding, "Because you know what? That's one looter that won't break into anyone else's home and take advantage of them when they're the most vulnerable and the most weak."

    Judd's comments echo the sentiment voiced earlier by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), who reminded those who might be thinking about looting their neighbors' homes and businesses that the Sunshine State is a stand-your-ground state.


    "We want to make sure we're maintaining law and order," DeSantis said, noting that law enforcement was keeping a particularly close eye on the areas of the state that had been hardest hit.

    "Don't even think about looting, don't even think about taking advantage of people in this vulnerable situation," he said, promising state support in addition to local law enforcement efforts and warning residents that looters could even be taking boats out to the more remote island homes. "I can tell you, in the state of Florida, you never know what may be lurking behind somebody's home. And I would not want to chance that if I were you, given that we're a 2nd Amendment state."
