Zero.

That's how many looters have been arrested in connection with the Nov. 24 riots in Ferguson, Missouri, KMOV-TV reported Friday.

A grand jury has decided not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed, black 18-year-old whose fatal shooting sparked sometimes violent protests.

The problem, police said, is just too darn many looters.

“You’re talking hundreds, maybe thousands of people,” explained Sgt. Brian Schellman with the St. Louis County Police.

Police are seeking help from the public, but so far, they've only managed to identify a dozen looters — and arrest none.

“Somebody out there knows them,” said Schellman. “I know it's around a dozen or a little more at this point [that have been identified].”

The investigation of that one violent night — the night that the grand jury announced there would be no indictment for Darren Wilson, the police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown — could take years, police said.

“You only have so many detectives on these cases," said Schellman. "They’re scouring through hours and hours of footage.”

Police are still hoping for help from the public.

“Some of these people may be out-of-towners that we never find, but we do know that somebody out there knows these people and we just hope those people step forward,” Schellman said.
