It was all over in less than 30 seconds. Police say a "flash mob" of ten people ransacked a North Face store in Wisconsin on Monday and took roughly $30,000 in merchandise, ABC News reports. "Ten black males entered the store and each grabbed as much merchandise as they could carry before running to the cars and leaving the property," says Sgt. Aaron Schaffer of the Pleasant Prairie Police Department, per Kenosha News. The suspects entered the outdoor gear and wear store at 7:45pm, an hour before closing, and perpetrated the theft without injuries or confrontation. They all remain at large. "It was like a flash mob," says Schaffer. Police posted video and photos of the theft to seek help from the public. (More theft stories.)
