Henryetta and Dewar families are looking out for each other after hearing looters were swimming through homes during the weekend's floods.
"We were stuck down the road because the firefighters would not let us back over the bridge to our home," said Patricia Brewer.
Brewer's family neighbor's called them less than two hours after the flooding started in their Henryetta home on 4th Street and Scott.
"They said three guys just swam into your front yard and into your gate," said Brewer's daughter Kimberly Kidwell, who also lives with Brewer along with her boyfriend, father, and Kidwell's grandson, 6-week-old Bentley.
Their neighbors were able to chase the looters away and even shouted at them.
"They asked them what they were doing and the looters said they were just checking on things," said Brewer.
But then after all the water receded, more looters came on Monday at 2 a.m. The family was not staying at their home; they were staying with other family members. A neighbor called them again and said two more men were in their home.
"They said two guys wearing black shirts and black pants were in our home," said Kidwell.
“The landlord who owns the property near ours called police but the guys were already gone by then,” said Kidwell.
The Brewer family told FOX23 News it did not look like anything was missing but it has been hard to tell because everything is water damaged.
