Police are working to identity the people involved in a "flash mob" theft of a 7-Eleven store in Germantown.
Montgomery County police said dozens of young people showed up suddenly at the convenience store in the 13000 block of Wisteria Drive at about 2 a.m. Saturday and started grabbing merchandize off the shelves. People took off with drinks, candy, icre cream and other items without paying.
Police are working to confirm the identity of at least four of the suspects, said Capt. Paul Starks. Investigators are checking social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to see whether any of the participants posted information about the theft and/or pictures of themselves committing the crime.
