First, Flash Mob, Now Flash Rob
- A mob of more than 20 teenagers descended on a trendy Wicker Park shop on Saturday and made off with more than $3,000 worth of jeans.
CBS 2′s [...] reports the incident was caught on store surveillance cameras, and the owner posted the video on YouTube.
Luke Cho said he hopes the images help police find the robbers, or maybe even shame the parents of the teens enough that they’ll turn the kids in.
Shame? Bwahahahahahaha! Pardon our laughter, but here it comes again:
The mob forced the doors in order to flee. No word on if they worked over the manager who locked the doors. But outnumbered 20-to-1, maybe locking yourself in with the animals isn't the smartest course of action. Look for reinforced "sally ports" to be the new redecorating model for stores - only three people allowed in at a time.
