TROUTDALE -- A flash mob targeted a Troutdale store last weekend and investigators are trying to identify the suspects.
Investigators said as many as 40 kids entered the Albertsons store at 25691 SE Stark Street at the same time late Saturday night and started stealing things.
Raw video: Flash robbery
Security officers chased the thieves out, but no one was captured. They also left employees pretty shaken up, including one woman who was in tears after getting terrorized by the robbers.
Investigators have not said exactly how many items were taken.
"Basically it looks like they went in, just to cause chaos, which they accomplished," said Sgt. Steve Bevens with the Troutdale Police Department.
Investigators believe the suspects ranged in age from 13 to 15. They could be seen on surveillance video, roaming from aisle to aisle.
Customers said the store employees were overwhelmed and outnumbered.
"They [thieves] were bragging and laughing about how much stuff they stole and what they did in the store," one witness told KGW.
If caught, the suspects could face several charges including rioting, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.
This was one of several flash mob-style robberies being investigated in the Portland Metro area over past months.
The fruits of liberalism.
Flash-robs would end before they began.
Yes, either that or German and Norwegian Lutherans trying to force people to take a hot dish and a jello mold.
There’s an old movie about the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and my favorite scene shows a body propped up with a sign around its neck, “looter”.
We used to shoot looters. Now they are “kids” on some kind of spree. That is what happens when there is no respect for private property. Obama and his ilk believe everything belongs to everyone.
If this continues, more people will shop on line, and more local stores will just close.
EBT and TANF ain’t enough.
We want more pie!
Go to facebook and you will find your culprits. I bet they have a video on Youtube already.
I hope the catch some or all of them and hammer them to the maximum allowable extent of the law.
What if someone would have had a heart attack, or more serious(in the eyes of any liberal) they would have aggressively approached/assaulted a pistol packing mama and her kids and she defended herself by blowing them away.
But we can't say “black kids.” Because that would be racist.
One of these times one of these white victims is going to be armed. And then there's going to be some dead black kids.
And the MSM will be screaming 24/7 about white racism.
They ALL look like Obama’s kids!
This is in Multnomah County. Local law enforcement won't do anything.
Hmm..might be hoodlum related?
I have a shirt tail relative (now deceased) who was serving in Germany during WWII....he said they were in a town that had been routed, and he was following another guy around looking into buildings, etc....well, the other guy decided to steal something from a store....his commanding officer saw him, SHOT HIM on the spot, and said to Bob, “You won’t be doing that, will you?”
Just like the riot at the WalMart in Jacksonville the night before.Always described as’youth’ or ‘teenagers’.Anybody see a white face anywhere??It would be refreshing if someone would be honest just once.These are feral animals.
And, I believe they would look OUT of PLACE in Troutdale.
Close the doors for good and more on. Community Action groups keep crying why folks have to cope with Food Deserts in the inner cities. Duh. Why do they think businesses leave?
Boys will be boys...
O’wait..I can’t say that...
They cant help it. They were only helping themselves to the Hope® and Change® that Obama promised them....
