Teen mob storms Chicago Walgreens

CHICAGO, June 26 (UPI) -- Scores of teenagers stormed a Chicago Walgreens store on North Michigan Avenue, stealing bottled drinks and sandwiches en masse, police said.

An estimated 50 youngsters took over the store Tuesday afternoon, and police were only able to detain three of the accused thieves, WBBM-TV, Chicago, reported.

Walgreens said it is working with police to identify other potential culprits from video surveillance recordings.

Commuters and bicyclists on Chicago's "Magnificent Mile" have been terrorized by violent teen mobs in recent months, and police are increasing their patrols, the TV station said.
