Teen mob “flash robs” Albertsons store

Posted: Updated:

The search is on for a large group of teenagers who ransacked and robbed the Albertsons store at Southeast 257th Avenue and Stark Street on Saturday night.

Troutdale Police say about 30 young teens walked into the store at 11:30 p.m. and started grabbing merchandise from the shelves while they damaged store property.

The four employees working at the time could only stand back and watch as the scene unfolded. No one tried to stop the teens. No one was injured.

Investigators are hoping surveillance video will identify the teenagers involved.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Troutdale Police.

The incident is similar to a series of "flash mob" thefts that happened in April. All of those cases were caught on camera.
