This has become an alarming issue where the teenagers are involved in plundering the stores and it has emerged over several cities across the states. But now the authorities are using a specific tool to identify the miscreants involved in the crime.
Surveillance video showed that a group of teens walked into a store at the middle of the night with the intention to plunder the store. These young people ransacked the store in less than a minute.
According to the video, minimum 28 different individuals have been spotted in plundering the store. The police have already posted the video in the YouTube.com and requested the public to identify the perpetrators.
The police have not yet arrested the suspects who have been identified but they are still hopeful that the public can help them locate the individuals on the tape. Some investigators believe that Internet played a great role to organize the robbery whereas other disagrees on it.
Other Flash Mob Reports and Editorials:
Initially, the “Flash mobs” is applied to the gatherings organized by social media sited or e-mails or text messages. But now the congregations of the young people have some sinister motive.
