(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.

    Where’s the video footage of the Eastern HS kids days earlier? Is DCPS surpressing it?

  • 7/11 was an inside job!

    Getting really tired of this. It’s basically a weekly occurrence. Depressed that this crap is going to metastasize to the 600 block of Penn when they open the next one. How may 7-11 stores do they need within two blocks of each other?!

    Walking home along 8th you see a group like this hanging out along the street from Starbucks all the way down the block to the 7-11, seems to be the after school crowd. To the parents of these kids, you have failed. To the kids in the video, you are non-contributing members of society. Get some self-respect.
    This is a society failure where kids think they can do this without consequence. It’s not a race thing.
    Anyone else notice what happened at 21 seconds into the video?

      I noticed. Do you blame her? I’m a big dude, and I think I would have just dropped my purchases and walked out to get away from the situation.
