A flash mob of some 50 people shoplifted snacks and drinks from a Maryland 7-Eleven Saturday night. As officers arrived at the Silver Spring convenience store late that evening, the crowd of what mainly seemed to be teenagers, dispersed.
Police stopped a group of six people ages 16-18 near Tech Road and Broadbirch Drive. Each had items from the 7-Eleven but no receipts, police said.
Detectives are investigating whether the shoplifters had attended a birthday party in the area, police said.
Police released the following surveillance video of the mass-theft in the hopes of identifying the individuals involved:
