Video: Three shoplifters rob California Walgreens store as security guard watches them
In a shocking turn of events, three shoplifters were caught on camera emptying shelves of a Walgreens in California’s Bay Area while the security guard simply watched them. While it is unclear when the incident took place but a Twitter user by the name @libsoftiktok shared the video on Monday, February 28. The video shows shoplifters brazenly clearing items off the shelves rattling and moving around fearlessly looking for more while the other shoppers looked on in bewilderment.
In the video, two men and a woman in face masks wearing pink, grey, and brown co-ord set can be seen grabbing items covered with plastic flaps in different aisles. The entire act produced a loud rattling noise but the thieves carried on, unaffected by the sound or people watching.

Within no time the security guard appeared in the video but instead of confronting the brazen thieves she just stood at the end of the aisle watching them. Someone in the background can be heard saying “Take a picture” another one said, “Let’s take a video of the face”. At the end of the clip, a witness appears to make a phone call for help saying, “I need an officer right now” and then citing the address. But nothing seemed to deter the crooks as they head from aisle to aisle rifling through the shelves and stuffing their bags. At the end of the clip, the female shoplifter decides to take off and is seen heading towards the exit but comes back to continue the uninterrupted looting.

Surprisingly, @libsoftiktok had posted another video of two more shoplifters robbing another drug store on Sunday. The video was posted on Twitter with the caption “Live from the San Francisco hellhole,” however the store in question isn’t mentioned.

In one such shoplifting incident in TJ Maxx California store, two men can be seen with their arms filled with merchandise, as they walk out of the store and drive away in a car. The brazen attempt was caught on video and uploaded on Instagram. The video went viral as people were shocked at just how calmly the two men walked away. The theft is part of a huge surge in crime, not just in California but nationally. Several stores have been looted of late, mostly under the guise of protests.
