(Updated at 9:30 a.m.) About a dozen boys were filmed grabbing bottled drinks, bags of snacks and jerky from a 7-Eleven on Barracks Row.
A theft happened in a building on the 400 block of 8th Street SE about 11 p.m. on Sept. 25, police said. Authorities didn’t identify the building. But video police released yesterday in connection with the theft shows about a dozen boys entering the 7-Eleven at 429 8th St. SE, taking food and drinks and then leaving.
The theft came two days after a group of kids committed a flash mob-style robbery at the same 7-Eleven, stealing money from a customer and various items from the store. That 7-Eleven also was the scene of a similar robbery involving several kids in early September, Capitol Hill Corner reported.
