One witness said it was a scene out of a movie. On Saturday night, 50 to 80 thugs ransacked Nordstrom in Walnut Creek, CA. They broke glass display cabinets and ransack the store in less than a minute. They loaded 25 cars full of high-end swag, and they hit the road.
At a nearby P.F., diners enjoyed their meal. Chang’s patrons watched as the scofflaws brought their designer goods through the windows of the Nordstrom. Brett Barrette, the restaurant manager, locked the doors.
“We saw probably 50 to 80 people wearing ski masks, Crowbars, and a lot of weapons. They stole from the Nordstrom’s right there. “I had to lock doors, lock both the front and back doors,” Barrette said to, the local ABC News affiliate.
Barrette said, “There was a mob.” “The police flew in. It was like watching a movie. It was crazy.
Three people were arrested by police after they rushed in. Two men were arrested and charged with possessing burglary tools, theft property, and conspiring to commit burglary. One woman was also charged with illegally possessing a firearm.
According to police, one Nordstrom employee was pepper-sprayed while two other employees were kicked and punched. They were both treated on the spot.
Nordstrom isn’t sure how much was stolen. Walnut police stated the flash mob is not connected to the protests or riots that commies are engaged in after the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict.
This massive shoplifting attack follows, a smaller but similar raid on a San Francisco Louis Vuitton boutique the day before.
The Union Square section of San Francisco is where the Louis Vuitton shop is located and police have restricted car access.
It is not yet known if the Nordstrom Storming and the Louis Vuitton Heists are connected.
California’s woke voters supported Proposition 47. This makes shoplifting less than $950 a misdemeanor and the police will not make an arrest. Surprisingly, the state has seen an alarming rise in shoplifting. Walgreen’s has closed 17 stores in San Francisco over the past five years because of shoplifting.
One woman was caught after she swiped $40,000 worth of goods from a Target store in the span of a year.
Thieves stole tens of thousands of dollars worth of loot from the Neiman-Marcus store in Union Square last summer. Louis Vuitton and Neiman Marcus reported more than $100,000 in handbags that were stolen earlier.
CVS and Walgreens said shoplifting in San Francisco is the worst in America. Target will close six of its local stores early to reduce the time people can steal from them.
It’s not surprising that shoplifting is a popular pastime. This law was voted for by shrewd citizens. They didn’t know what would happen. Some “poor” people might not go to jail for stealing bread to feed their children. The stolen swag is often sold, even internationally. The people voted in Prop 47 to create a new crime industry.
