At least 17 arrested in Orlando in connection with Saturday night protests

The Orlando Police Department announced officers arrested 17 people in connection with Saturday night’s protests and break-ins.

At least eight people were arrested in connection to looting incidents at businesses in the Millenia area, said Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolón at a press conference Sunday.

“At this point, all of the arrestees so far, happen to have local addresses. However, we continue to investigate reports of people or groups from out of town and their alleged impact on the tone and actions of what are mostly peaceful demonstrations,” the department wrote in an email to Fotonz Grid.
