WATCH: Mob Of 80 Criminals Loot A Nordstrom Store In Walnut Creek, California – Three Arrested

An estimated 80 thieves, dressed in face masks, stormed a California Bay Area Nordstrom store, stole merchandise and them ran away in getaway cars over the weekend. So far, police have managed to arrest only three of the suspects.

Roughly 25 cars blocked the streets, as the chiefs jumped out and rushed into the Walnut Creek Nordstrom department store. Some carried crowbars. After looting the store, the suspects returned to their vehicles and took off.

Witnesses reported the shocking scenes of the crowd storming the store and taking as much as they can carry.

“As soon as I saw people running down the street, I saw probably 50 to 80 people, with ski masks, crowbars and a bunch of weapons. They were looting the Nordstorm right here,” said one eyewitness to the looting.

The incident follows a clear pattern of organized retail theft in California. Stores around the state are struggling to fight organized gangs of looters due to its lax laws on property crime.

Back in July, a spokesman for Target said that the store has seen a “significant” and “alarming” rise in theft.

Some stores have even resorted to high-tech solutions as the police seem to be unable to do anything about it.

Meanwhile, just a day prior, suspects in San Francisco took off with a car after ransacking a Luis Vuitton store. The following footage shows their arrest.

Specifically, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento have some of the most organized retail crime gangs in the country.
