Roughly 300 teenagers took to a Jacksonville, Florida Walmart Saturday night after a nearby party was broken up by police (possibly because someone was reportedly shot in the leg).
Not only did the out-of-control youths both steal and destroy merchandise, according to reports, they also started throwing food and equipment around for the sake of it.
“They are stealing items, they are all over the store. You can imagine how fearful the customers were who were in there at that particular time,” Channel 4 crime analyst Ken Jefferson said.
According to a police report, among the equipment destroyed was an anti-shoplifting security scanner that cost roughly $1,500.
Watch YouTube video of the scene, below:
“Hey, I got food stamps for sale, for real, dog,” one of the men was recorded saying at around the 1:25 mark.
According to News4Jax.com, police did not make any arrests after the mob took over the store. However, the teens obviously could face criminal charges.
The Florida Times-Union reports that, in addition to the mobbing of the Walmart, gunshots may have also been fired outside, though no people or cars were hit.
The video ends with the collective cry: “Hey, let‘s go to Wendy’s!”
