    A group of thieves hit a Home Depot in California and stole tools including crowbars and sledgehammers in the latest smash-and-grab robbery, authorities say

    Authorities in California are looking for a group of suspects who ransacked a Home Depot on Friday night, in one of the latest smash-and-grab robberies in the state.

    According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, just after 7:30 p.m., the group went into the Lakewood establishment and stole an estimated $400 worth of tools including sledgehammers and crowbars.

    The suspects then fled the scene in a red Mercedes Benz "with severe damage to the front of the vehicle," police said.

    As KTLA reported, an employee said that he saw at least 18 suspects in the store.

    "They had the sledgehammers ready to hit people who were trying to stop them," Luis Romo told the outlet.

    A wave of smash-and-grabs has been on the rise with multiple reports coming out of California throughout the holiday season. Last weekend, various luxury stores, cannabis dispensaries, and pharmacies were hit by a group of robbers in the Bay Area.

    The crime sprees have been also been occurring in other states. In Chicago, a group of 14 suspects stole about $120,000 of merchandise from a Louis Vuitton store last week. Surveillance video shows the robbers running into the store and clearing it out within minutes. Other retailers in the city's Wicker Park neighborhood were targeted on Black Friday. North Face, Footlocker, and Boost Mobile were all hit within an hour.

    News Crew’s Bodyguard Killed by Armed Robbers While Covering Bay Area Robbery

    A security guard working for a California news station died on Saturday, days after he was shot by armed robbers while protecting a news crew reporting on a recent armed robbery.

    Ex-police officer Kevin Nishita was guarding the KRON4 crew on Wednesday as they covered a recent Oakland robbery. When someone attempted to steal their camera gear, Nishita attempted to block the assailant but was shot in the lower abdomen.

    Looters Ransack Numerous Retailers Across Country Throughout Thanksgiving Week

    https://www.breitbart.com/crime/2021...ksgiving-week/

    NICK GILBERTSON 28 Nov 2021

    Groups of looters ransacked shopping centers and retailers around the country throughout Thanksgiving week following last weekend’s full-fledged stealing bonanza in California’s Bay Area.

    A Sunglass Hut at the Del Monte shopping center in Monterey, California, was hit by a group of four on Friday, who stole an estimated $30,000 in sunglasses, police confirmed to KSBW.

    Store Manager Shauna Weirich said the bandits were in and out within two minutes.

    “They just knew what to do,” she said per KSBW. “No rhyme or reason for it they just knew what to do, when to do it and how to get the most out of what they were doing.”

    The same day, a group of eight between the ages of 15 and 20, stole crowbars, hammers, and other tools from a Lakewood, California, Home Depot, according to Fox 11, citing the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. They made off with an estimated $400 in tools.

    “We tried to stop them,” Home Depot employee Luis Romo told FOX 11. “We closed the front entrance and they put their sledgehammers up and whoever got in the way, they were going to hurt them.”

    Fox 11 reports:

    The suspects all fled the store in getaway vehicles parked outside. According to the sheriff’s department, one of the getaway vehicles was a red Mercedes Benz with severe damage to the front. The department says possibly 10 vehicles were involved.

    Around 9 p.m. Friday, officers with the Beverly Hills Police Department spotted several vehicles with no license plates near Beverly Dr. and Dayton Way. Thy [sic] conducted a traffic stop on one of the vehicles; the four occupants were taken into custody.

    They were booked at the Lakewood Sheriff’s Station and items among the alleged stolen property were recovered, Lakewood city officials said Saturday.

    Crimes were not isolated to the Golden State. Two mobs of looters ransacked multiple Best Buys in metro Minnesota on Friday night, according to the Star Tribune.

    Both of the ransackings took place shortly after 8:00 p.m. Police say a mob of 20 to 30 people rampaged through the Burnsville Best Buy, while a group of ten to 12 that included both juveniles and adults hit the Maplewood store, according to the Star Tribune.

    No injuries were reported, and no one was arrested as of Saturday.

    More looting was documented in the midwest on Black Friday. Three men reportedly waltzed into a Chicago Foot Locker, filled trash bags with merchandise, and fled the area, according to NBC Chicago, citing a WBBM-TV report.

    Though Black Friday brought numerous group thefts throughout the country, looting had been prevalent throughout the days leading up to Black Friday.

    On Wednesday, a group of thieves reportedly stole designer handbags from a Nordstrom in the Westfield Topanga mall in Canoga Park in Los Angeles, according to Fox 11. The looters made off with an estimated $25,000 in merchandise.

    Breitbart News 642 on an incident that left a security guard dead while he was protecting a KRON news crew:

    The victim’s name is Kevin Nishita, and he left behind his wife, two children, and three grandchildren. Nishita was an armed security guard for Star Protection Agency and was a former policeman.



    https://twitter.com/ACSOSheriffs/sta...giving-week%2F

    The outlet said, “The KRON4 crew was covering a story on Wednesday about a recent robbery where 12 thieves wearing masks and hoods raided a clothing store on the 300 block of 14th Street,” adding that at 12:20 p.m. Wednesday, an assailant attempted to steal KRON4’s camera equipment, according to police.”

    Nishita was shot in his lower abdomen and later succumbed to his injuries.

    The mayhem of Thanksgiving week follows a three-night-long free-for-all in California’s Bay Area last weekend, previously reported by Breitbart News.

    Looters hit high-end stores like Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent in San Francisco’s Union Square on November 19. The next night a group of 50-80 rushed a Walnut Creek Nordstrom near San Francisco.

    Police estimate between $100,000 to $200,000 was lifted from the department store, according to Fox News.

    On November 21, a Lululemon in San Jose was ransacked. At least 40,000 in merch was stolen from the store, according to Fox News.

    So, I've seen, over the past few years, people bring up the film, The Purge (never saw it), predicting we'd get there. Looks like we're there.

    a group of eight between the ages of 15 and 20, stole crowbars, hammers

    How does anyone know their ages if nobody was arrested?

    The 15-20 year olds who got away with $400 worth of tools instead of $30k worth of sunglasses are the smart ones. Capital vs consumer goods. Stock up now. Without stealing, of course.

    A few, according to the story.

    Doesn't matter, they'll be released.

    Most of the jurisdictions that this is occurring in have passed laws de-criminalizing petty theft, or theft of less than $1000, worth of property.

    Oh, yes, I'm fully aware. I just didn't know how someone could give an age range like that when they have not been identified.

    Just saw that four were arrested but no other info was given about who they are. They were in cars w/o plates in Beverly Hills. Connection suspected but not confirmed, yet. Perhaps they're the spawn of rich liberals.

    By the time Democrats realize property crime is actually a bad thing, they are too outnumbered by criminals to do anything about it.

    The Marxist left (aka democrats and "liberals") are trapped by their own rhetoric: there can be no crime against property, because the very concept of private property is racist white supremacy.

    As if it can't get any worse, they "accidently" released two of the three people they arrested, one who brought a gun to the robbery.

    MARTINEZ, Calif. (KGO) -- A suspect arrested in connection with a flash-mob style theft at the Walnut Creek Nordstrom appeared in court Monday. Two more are scheduled to appear in court tomorrow, but were already released from custody according to the Contra Costa County District Attorney and Sheriff's Office.

    The Sheriff's Office now says it is investigating why one of the suspects was released.
    ...
    A criminal complaint filed last week named three of those alleged individuals; Dana Dawson, Joshua Underwood and Rodney Robinson.

    The District Attorney says Robinson pleaded not guilty Monday and is still in custody. Dawson and Underwood are scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow but the D.A. said she believed they were out of custody and directed ABC7 News to the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office to obtain confirmation. Monday evening, ABC7 News confirmed with the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office that two of the three suspects had been released. According to the DA, Dawson is a previously convicted felon who is charged with using a Glock handgun in connection with the theft.
