TROUTDALE, Ore. -- Police say they have identified 12 teens who ransacked a grocery store in Troutdale Saturday night as part of a 'flash mob.'
Sgt. Steve Bevens, spokesman for Toutdale police, said the 'flash rob' happened Saturday around 11:15 p.m. at the Albertsons store on Southeast Stark Street and Southeast 257th Avenue in Troutdale.
Bevens said 30 to 40 black teens, all minors, rushed the store to cause chaos, overwhelming employees as they ran through the store throwing things from shelves, stealing items, throwing produce on the floor.
"We are working to get more information and have put a couple of names to faces," said Bevens.
Detectives have also learned Trimet officers contacted this group Saturday night as they were headed from Portland to Troutdale. Bevens said detectives are working with Trimet to get any video surveillance of the suspects.

They took mass transit from Portland to Troutdale in order to commit crimes.
This is why the left pushes for mass transit...to "redistribute" crime.
little feral animals strike again and their punishment will be a slap on the wrist——maybe.
Seems like LA has expanded to Oregon and Washington! Those people just gotta love that Californicate legal immigration bunch.
This type of thing doesn’t even happen in Third World countries. Only in the West where teen criminals are coddled and not really punished. We need a Singapore solution..the cane. Young criminals remember that more than a stay in Juve.
Boot camp exercises for the obama youth shock troops to be deployed when he is either arrested or rejected at the polls. Teaching them to ride the bus was the hard part.
You mean a slap on the paw.
Are we any safer today than we were 4 years ago?
What ever became of law and order? What ever became of human decency? This is not what human behavior should be. Is this the real future of America? This is the beginning of Chaos, this is the result of poor child raising and lack of civil leadership. Hope?Change? Bull$h!#. I see civil insurrection in our country’s future, I hope I’m not around for it, its going to be messy.
These were not immigrants.
They only temporarily “immigrated” from NE Portland to Troutdale to crash a party. Then, someone decided to rob a supermarket instead.
>Bevens said 30 to 40 black teens...
OMG, someone actually said “Black teens,” not “youths.”
Something may be coming to a head. - Or a slow boil...
Checking facebook, youtube, and twitter after one of these incidents should net them plenty of suspects. The idiots are stupid and brazen enough to brag to the world when they do things like this.
“I hope Im not around for it”
I’m closer to the end than the beginning. That gives me the luxury of hoping that I am around for it.
June 15: 150 blacks attack and rob whites at Laurelhurst Park in Portland.
June 20: 15 blacks destroy a grocery store 13 miles away in Troutdale.
My wife and I drove into Troutdale from the east after visiting Multnomah Falls a couple weekends back. Looked like a very nice little town. It’s on the very eastern edge of Portland adjoining the rural areas. Too bad the feral blacks are headed in that direction.
“Im closer to the end than the beginning. That gives me the luxury of hoping that I am around for it.”
Dittos. Its time for some payback before we go.
this is happening in all the cities....in Chicago, they come into the good parts of Chicago via public transportation and commit crime and cause havoc...
Troutdale is connected to Gresham, which I am told by my sil is a not a very good area....also, the worse part of Portland is far east Portland....these ferals just hop on Trimet and cruise up and down....
Yes. it’s about the last place, at least in terms of suburbs of major cities, where you would have expected to see this.
Not very good compared to what? You can do a whole lot worse in other areas of Portland.
Gresham has good parts (not adjacent to Portland) and bad parts (Rockwood—adjacent to Portland).
The worst area in the Portland Metro area is North Portland, which is apparently where many of these particular “teens” are from.
Public transportation seems to serve primarily as a crime distribution system these days.
Do I need some diversity training since I KNEW IT WAS BLACKS that committed these crimes before even reading the story?
Shame on you! You’re not supposed to guess accurately.
BULL; Portland has been riddled with LA and eastern gang subsidiaries for over 20 years, they just refuse to admit it and deal with it. Not politically correct you know.
“Public transportation seems to serve primarily as a crime distribution system these days.”
That is why the liberal bastions west of Newark NJ opposed extending the trains from NYC out to their suburbs, and why newer highways heading southwest from the Newark area have few exits in the wealthy towns they pass through.
“This is happening in all the cities....in Chicago, they come into the good parts of Chicago via public transportation and commit crime and cause havoc...”
Same thing in Minneapolis. No city is immune.
Hey NOOB, reading comprehension is a prerequisite here. Third grade geography helps, too. Troutdale is not Portland.
