Flash Mob Shoplifters Rob Michigan Ave. Gap Store

Some time this evening, around 6:30 p.m., a group of African-American teenage shoplifters swarmed a downtown Chicago GAP clothing store.

Police said the juvenile offenders were caught on tape stealing merchandise from the Michigan Avenue retailer.

The robbery occurred at the GAP at 555 North Michigan Avenue.

At 7:07 p.m., police spotted seven or eight teens near the intersection of North State Street and East Chicago Avenue. The officer said the subjects matched the description of the teens who robbed the GAP clothing store.

Authorities received a tip that the shoplifters might have changed their clothes, and were possibly wearing the stolen articles of clothing.

However, according to the officer who stopped the teens at State and Chicago, the subjects didn’t appear to have any stolen merchandise on them.

I have not been able to confirm if any arrests were made.
