Police have released surveillance video that shows persons of interest in a “flash mob” robbery that happened at a 7-Eleven store in northeast D.C.
Police say the robbery occurred on Monday, April 14 at around 9:35 p.m.
On the video, about 20 people are seen entering a convenience store on the 4400 block of Benning Road – one right after another.
The video shows several unidentified subjects dashing out the store with what appear to be goods in their hands.
According to the police report, in a matter of about three minutes, the suspects took candy, snacks and soda before running out of the door. Police say the total value of the stolen merchandise was about $350.
No one has been charged with a crime at this time.

A Bassfield convenience store owner killed an alleged robber, shooting him at least 11 times, WDAM reported.
Officials say the owner was also wounded during the incident. He was taken to Forrest General Hospital for surgery and is expected to recover.
The alleged robber LeRobert John of Bassfield was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to investigators, a gunman entered a Get and Go convenience store Monday morning in Jefferson Davis County on Mississippi 42 and demanded money.
The armed robber shot the store owner in the leg before all the money had been taken. The gunman exited the store but returned to take the rest of the cash. By that time the owner had a 9mm handgun. When the gunman approached, the owner shot the robber at least 11 times.
Jefferson David County Coroner Jimmy Slater said there were 11 to 13 gunshot wounds in John’s body.
No, I am not going to get into the 9mm vs .40, vs .45 debate here. Just like I do not get into the Glock vs Sig Sauer Vs Taurus vs. Beretta vs Smith & Wesson vs. Kimber vs HK vs Ruger vs Springfield debates. What caliber you use, and what gun maker you prefer is personal. I am no gun snob.
the premiums are going higher and higher, the tax burden is increasing, fuel prices are not going down, making everything cost more. And the regulations by the EPA will certainly spike energy prices, and now, another regulation in Obamacare will make your trips to the grocery store even more expensive
Supermarket owners argue a pending federal food-labeling rule that stems from the new health care law would overburden thousands of grocers and convenience store owners — to the tune of $1 billion in the first year alone.
Store owner Tom Heinen said the industry’s profit margins already are razor thin. “When you incur a significant cost, there is no way that that doesn’t get passed on to the customer in some form,” he said.
The rule stems from an ObamaCare mandate that restaurants provide nutrition information on menus. Most in the restaurant industry were supportive of the idea, but when the FDA decided to extend the provision to also affect thousands of supermarkets and convenience stores, the backlash was swift.
The proposed regulation would require store owners to label prepared, unpackaged foods found in salad bars and food bars, soups and bakery items. Erik Lieberman, regulatory counsel at the Food Marketing Institute, said testing foods for nutritional data will require either expensive software or even more costly off-site laboratory assessments.
Lieberman said failure to get it right comes with stiff penalties: ”If you get it wrong, it’s a federal crime, and you could face jail time and thousands of dollars worth of fines.” (Read More)
