PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wisconsin -- A band of shoplifters who formed a 'flash mob' and rushed into a North Face store are accused of stealing $30,000 worth of merchandise, according to a report in the Kenosha News.

Dramatic video obtained from the Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, Police Department shows the group of ten shoplifters walk into the store, before quickly grabbing as many items as they can carry and rushing out.

The robbery happened just before 8:00 p.m. Monday, the Kenosha News says.

"10 black males entered the store and each grabbed as much merchandise as they could carry before running to the cars and leaving the property,” Sgt. Aaron Schaffer told the newspaper.

None of the suspects have been taken into custody. Police say to contact them or the Kenosha Area Crime Stoppers if you recognize anyone in the video.
