Police Seek IDs of These People from Crowd of Shoplifting Youth [Video]

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying several shoplifting suspects after they were caught on video camera rushing convenience stores in Alabama, overwhelming employees and fleeing with beer and snack food.

At least three convenience stores — a Raceway on Troy Highway, a Chevron on West South Boulevard and a Raceway on Eastern Boulevard — reported large groups of young adults shoplifting from them. Montgomery police Captain Regina Duckett said 20-year-old Alima Hunter was charged with fourth-degree theft following the fracas at the Troy Highway store last month.

The suspects trickled in slowly at first, grabbing items close to the doors then fleeing, according to video footage of the thefts. About a minute into the incident one person held the door open as a horde of girls and boys in bathing suits grabbed cases of beer. An employee with a push broom tried to stop them but was too overwhelmed. He was hit over the head with a case of beer by one man running from the store.
