28 Arrested in Puerto Rico for Curfew Violations after Hurricane Maria

SAN JUAN – A total of 28 people arrested for curfew violations and 36 more for robbery is the provisional number of lawbreakers taken into custody following the devastation of Hurricane Maria, which destroyed so much of the Caribbean island’s infrastructure.

Public Affairs Secretary Ramon Rosario told a press conference on Monday about the arrests for both infractions.

Meanwhile, the Internal Revenue Service and police inspected several businesses and suspended their sales licenses for six months for violating the Dry Law, which on specified occasions bans the consumption of alcoholic beverages.

Licenses to sell alcoholic beverages will be revoked for Bottles de San Patricio, 24 Marketplace Store and B&B Marketplace, among other establishments.

The powerful weather phenomenon, which hit Puerto Rico on Sept. 19 as a Category 5 hurricane, left a provisional death toll of 16 and caused a number of airports on the island to be closed.
