At 10:20pm on Tuesday, July 3rd dozens of customers suddenly flooded into the Casey's General Store at 1532 Ellis Boulevard NW. The entire incident was caught on camera. The group snakes its way through the aisles, grabbing items from coolers and off the shelves, then filing out of the store without paying.
