Flash mob incident at 7-11 in Maryland caught on YouTube

As someone who lives in the Washington DC area, the Virginia burbs, I’m outraged at reports of flash mob incidents, even across the river, in Silver Spring, MD (at a 7-11 store), even when I’m playing on the road myself, returning from Texas.  The incident occurred Saturday night, Nov. 19.

Here is the police video; the Huffington Post carried it, but so do local TV stations.

If you recognize any perpetrators, call Montgomery County Police (link) at  240-773-TIPS OR 240-773-8477 or text at 274673.

Some reports say that many participants had been to a birthday party at a nearby townhome.

This is certainly an example of misuse of social media. 
Montgomery County is considering a teen curfew, but some adults were involved in the mass flash shoplift.
