More than a dozen people participated in a "flash mob" style robbery of Mildblend Supply Co. on Saturday Night, making off with an estimated $2,000 dollars worth of merchandise.
Security camera footage posted to YouTube shows members of the group enter the store from Wicker Park Fest on Milwaukee Avenue and eventually grab armfuls of jeans, many of which cost more than $200 dollars each.
Owner Luke Cho said the theft could have been "a lot worse," but employees locked the store's doors as people began streaming in. Eventually participants in the robbery forced the doors open and fled the scene.
