UPPER DARBY A mob of about 40 people stormed into the Sears department store on 69th Street Thursday, and in a flash stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, officials said.
Police were able to round up 15 juveniles and one adult, 19, all from West Philadelphia.
They came in on the El train and hit Sears, police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. They stole sneakers, socks, watches, whatever they could get their hands on, and left.
Imagine the guts of this gang of young hoodlums. One was 11 years old. The others arrested ranged from 12 to 16 years old. They planned this out earlier in the day on a social networking site. It was pre-planned. They got on the El, got off at 69th Street Terminal and walked up the hill to Sears.
Kyree Marsh, 19, of the 5500 block of Spruce Street, Philadelphia, was arrested and charged with retail theft, conspiracy to retail theft and corruption of minors.
Police recovered some of the stolen sneakers and socks that were in the backpack of one of the individuals arrested and in the pockets of others taken into custody.
According to the affidavit, the Sears loss-prevention officer saw the mob enter the store at 7:09 p.m. on Thursday.
The group then began taking merchandise off the shelves.

Too bad the loss-prevention officers are not allowed to thin the herd. That would stop this crap.
Gee, I wonder what word "(pack)" replaced?
Shoot a few of them and they will learn!
All too young to punish. Catch and release.
Welfare state entitlement wilders. It won’t stop until they’re gunned down.
Shoot on sight, that will solve this problem.
Well, I guess they can lock up the 19 year old.
Trending!!! This is going to get worse, once kids realize that many don’t get caught and their isn’t anything anyone can do while it’s happening.
In Obamaworld, Sears is the criminal and these kids are just trying to redistribute the wealth from the rich.
Just some of Howdy Doodys people having fun.
a way of life ...they just broke “White Mans law” not “Black Mans law” according to Holder they did nothing wrong!
The first “better” in the third sentence of the preceding post should read “find.”
It will solve the problem on its own, when businesses stop setting up shop within easy access of black neighbourhoods. The black youths might be getting a kick out of doing this stuff now, but they may not find it so funny when they have to bus it 2 hours one way to buy some bread or eggs or their favourite gold chains.
Notice the difference with how the Japanese people reacted after the tsunami hit their country.
