Shoplifters were caught on cellphone video brazenly stealing items off shelves at a Walgreens as daytime customers — and a uniformed security guard — simply watched.

Libs of Tik Tok posted the clip to Twitter on Sunday and indicated the Walgreens in question is located in California's Bay Area:

The clip begins with a shot of three shoplifters in an aisle grabbing items off shelves equipped with hard plastic flaps — but the obstacles do little to deter the thieves, who are all wearing pink and grey jackets along with face masks.

Soon a security guard pops into the frame, but she does not approach the crew and instead stands at the end of the aisle, looking on. Someone — perhaps the security guard —apparently calls for help and requests, "I need an officer right now."

Undeterred, the crooks head to other aisles and add to the number of items in their bags as they rifle through shelves. In fact, one of the shoplifters is seen heading for the Walgreens' exit — but at the last second she decides to turn around and head to another shelf and add to her loot.

'Live from the San Francisco hellhole'

Libs of Tik Tok posted a second video Sunday showing two more shoplifters having their way in another drug store. While the clip is accompanied by text that reads, "Live from the San Francisco hellhole," the store in question isn't identified.

Similar to the first video, the masked duo here have their way in the aisle and grab items behind plastic covers at will. At one point, they both wrench open the covers, apparently breaking them, and make off with items in backpacks and plastic bags.

On their way out, one individual appears to try to trip one of them — but to no avail:

Anything else?

Readers of TheBlaze have seen their share of viral videos showing brazen, organized looting in the Bay Area and elsewhere in California. In December, San Francisco's far-left Mayor London Breed — who in 2020 jumped on the "defund the police" bandwagon after the death of George Floyd and proposed $120 million in cuts to police budgets over two years — made a headline-grabbing speech in which she called out the "bulls**t" crime "that has destroyed our city."
