At Mildblend Supply Co. on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago on Saturday, more than 20 teenagers committed a “flash robbery.” Let’s hope this doesn’t become a thing.
The teens enter this store, casually grab whatever size jeans they need, and stroll out. Because there are so many of them, the retail store employees don’t have much action they can take to stop the criminals. Store owner Luke Cho said, “They completely overwhelmed us.”
“They knew what they want and went straight for it.” The it in this case was a trendy brand of jeans known as “Nudie Jeans.” Cho added, “I’ve gotten somewhat immune to the shoplifting here with young people, but this one was certainly different.”
Cho estimates the thieves made off with roughly $3,000 worth of merchandise.
