The brazen thieves appeared unfazed as they took armfuls of goods and burst through front doors as metal detectors sounded the alarms. A customer inside the store who filmed the incident told KTLA that the group “knew exactly where they were going.”
Once outside the store, the group transported the merchandise in an SUV and fled, according to KABC.
