Bikes & electronics delight looters after cargo ship spill (PHOTOS)
Some 10 individuals have been arrested, police said in a statement, after attempting to take advantage of the spill, which saw an oasis of bikes and electronics appear in the waters close to the Port of Santos.
The booty was the result of choppy waters causing a difficult journey for the cargo ship ‘Log-In Pantanal’ on Friday. Around 45 containers spilt into the ocean, causing a frantic dash for those wishing to take advantage.
A fisherman was also detained by police, who seized him onshore with five bicycles.
