Teen Mob Steals Jeans From Chicago Store in a Flash

by at . Comments

A surveillance video of a Chicago flash mob robbery shows a group of about 20 teens allegedly stealing over $3,000 worth of jeans over the weekend.

CBS 2 reports that Mildblend Supply Co. owner Luke Cho posted the surveillance video on YouTube, hoping the images help police find the teen mob.

That or keep parents on alert, in hopes that the culprits will be outed one way or the other, perhaps shamed enough that they’ll turn themselves in.

A Chicago Police spokesperson said the case is being actively investigated and that tips have been rolling since the video of the robbery went on YouTube.

From the moment the teens started flooding in the door his store on Milwaukee Avenue around 6:40 p.m. Saturday, Cho knew something wasn’t right.

Soon after, he realized he'd been robbed of thousands in merchandise. Flash mobs used as a criminal tool ... what today's teens won't think of next.

Small town? I'm sure you exited on a float? Elusive is what you are. A real 21st century Chameleon. As you were!


@Yep: There's just something about maintaining that shroud of mystery! I can't help it! Multiple identities fascinate me! To be someone different every day is such a lark! I doubt the C.I.A. would take me..don't even think I could get my foot in the door of the sanitation engineering dept. of the F.B.I., but I'll admit it would be a swell career nonetheless! I just can't bring myself to reveal my true identity, so guess the deal's off. Think you're wise though in ignoring me when I'm nasty and rude. It's attention I crave in a dysfunctional way, so getting huffy 'n puffy just plays right into my hands. And I know you're above such a thing! You're simply too smart for me! I will tell you though..I love small things...that include towns. I oughta know--I was raised in one.


@Yep Ok will have convo in am. Maybe work out somehow.


Just don't have it in you do you? Can't give away that identity? Yeah- C.I.A trait I'm guessing / classified and all. Sorry but the deal only worked both ways and if you are indeed male then I'm as queer as a 3 dollar bill. @ Jayhawk-tricky- is what it will be getting those seats together. I checked it out today. Have plenty of time and will discuss in the AM?


Trouble is I've created so many identities that I quite frankly don't know who I am right now. Even when I pass by a mirror--confusion sets in for a few moments. Yes, I'm smack dab in the middle of a bonafide identity crisis! You go ahead and avoid me though because it's the best thing to do. If I write anything obnoxious and cruel just ignore me. I deserve it and it's probably the only way to get me to put the kabash on all this tomfoolery! I'm pathetic and I know it.


Geesh! What's all this I'm reading below?!? Hey, MATTY...get a life! Your kid I bet is a doozy with you at the helm! You sound like a bitter woman. If not, you're a bitter gay boy...again I feel for your kid! Just leave folks alone here...WILL YOU?!?!? I go from thread to thread and see the attacks of you 'n your lot on other bloggers such as this ONCE AGAIN that are way out of line! You're not winning any points--or converts for sure! Reality check: Mitt's gonna win. Obama's enjoyin' his last months. Your entitlements will be cut but good news...with Romney jobs will be created and the economy will be on the mend. Yeah, it's a win-win situation so get smart and vote the way ya know ya should! Now behave!


Your not male, to much scattered emotion in your type. So, your really didn't introduce yourself. To whom am I talking? Early user name would be sufficient. Not a 6th alias. Tell me true and I'll try and stay out of your way. As long as you understand- I am not everybody!


I'm really sorry Matt. I need therapy, but SH*T living the casual entitlement life is just too much of a damn big temptation...actually an addiction now for me. I know I give you crap 'bout your sexual orientation. I can deeply sense your heterosexual self, but I just have to slam you with gay accusations because...well, I'm in the closet and just can't seem to get the door latch loose to come out and breath free admitting to my fag lifestyle. Thus, I intimidate people like you. Again, I apologize for all my shortcomings.
