 What is going on in Chicago? Flash mob robbery [video]
topic by thergs - 07-29-2012, 02:25 PM


A Chicago clothing store is out about $2,000 worth of merchandise after being hit by a "flash mob"-styled robbery.

The robbery, captured by surveillance cameras at Mildblend Supply Co. and posted on YouTube, took place during the Wicker Park Fest street festival Saturday evening.

The footage shows a group of about a dozen men entering the store, located at 1543 N. Milwaukee Ave., and grabbing several piles of jeans.

Luke Cho, the store's owner, told Gapers Block that the theft could have been "a lot worse" as employees locked the store's doors when the group entered.

The men, according to Gapers Block, managed to force the doors open and left.

The store is urging anyone who can identify the individuals in the video to contact police at 312-744-8290.

The Saturday robbery is not the first time "mob-style" crime has raised concern in Chicago this summer. Earlier this month, 11 suspects were arrested in connection with a mob attack on a man in River North. A group of seven teens were charged in a similar downtown mugging attack in June.

Looks like a group of well educated law abiding citizens who entered a store and took their time deciding if they wanted to purchase random items...WITH THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY OR DEBIT CARDS....If you see otherwise than you're obviously a RACISTS.... lmao

Man this store has some ####ty locks on their door if these dude were able to force the doors open before police could arrive on the scene. This store needs to get a metal shutter that you pull down and then lock to the ground. If they had that no way these dudes would've gotten out, police would've just come and rounded them all up.
