Thanksgiving Day "smash-and-grab" at Chicago store

Chicago police are investigating a smash-and-grab robbery at an urban clothing store early Thursday morning.

Authorities say thieves rammed a truck into the wall of the J-Bees Store and took off with several items.

Surveillance video shows that over 10 people were involved.

“They stole this red truck from somewhere and they break it. They break the yellow part first, and then they break that in. And then they break the wall. As soon as they break the wall, all you see is people coming in – like 10, 15, 20 people just coming inside with the garbage bags. That is so crazy and then they just walk out with everything,” says store manager Muhammad Lodhi.

Police have not confirmed the number of suspects, and similar robberies have taken place in the Chicago area over the past several weeks.

Authorities are looking into whether they are related.
