Witnesses say the whole thing happened in under 10 minutes at the West Market Street Circle K early Sunday morning in Akron.

About 30-70 juveniles all at once rushed the store — grabbing things from the shelves, then tossing the items while running around the parking lot like “wild children.”

During their theft of about $200 worth of items, the suspects trashed the place, and damaged store shelves.

Police say their loot appeared to be mainly chips and candy.

A couple captured video of the scene from their car after pumping gas at the store, according to Newsnet5.

“I don’t know where they came from. They stole a bunch of candy. They just stole a bunch of stuff and are trashing the gas station right now,” a woman can be heard saying in the video.

Police are now looking over the store’s surveillance video. If you have any information about this crime, you’re urged to call (330) 375-2552.
