Flash Mob Ransacks C-Store, Police Looking for Dozens of Suspects [Viral Video]

An eastern Iowa convenience store was ransacked by a flash mob last week, police say. At 10:20pm on Tuesday, dozens of customers suddenly flooded into the Casey’s General Store at 1532 Ellis Boulevard NW. The entire incident was caught on camera. The group snakes its way through the aisles, grabbing items from coolers and off the shelves, then filing out of the store without paying.

Cedar Rapids Police say the group also assaulted other customers in the store, along with stealing merchandise and damaging store property. The Cedar Rapids Police Department is trying to identify every individual who was caught on camera. If you know anyone in the video, please contact the Police Department Investigation Division at 319.286.5523 or 319.286.5485. Please leave a message.   [Source: WHO-TV13 News]
