30-40 black teens stormed a Troutdale, Oregon Albertsons grocery store.
The Troutdale Police department says they intend to throw the book on these kids for:
- disorderly conduct
- criminal mischief
in addition to the obvious crime of theft.
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.
Security officers chased the thieves out, but no one was captured. They also left employees pretty shaken up…
“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.
“They [thieves] were bragging and laughing about how much stuff they stole and what they did in the store,” one witness told KGW.
