WATCH: New footage of Philadelphia looters ransacking pharmacies, gas station with armloads of stolen goods

Philadelphia police are working on identifying thieves who were caught on surveillance videos during a two-day late September looting spree ransacking local businesses.

In a batch of newly released surveillance videos, the Philadelphia Police Department asked for the community’s help in identifying the suspects who were caught on camera breaking into and rampaging an Aldi grocery store, a Walgreens, a Mavis Tire store, a local pharmacy, and an AutoZone.

Surveillance footage shows groups smashing doors and windows before rushing the stores and clearing shelves.

In one video, a group of masked thieves are seen gaining entry into a gas station vestibule, tearing down lottery machine, and stomping on them.

 

The chaos started just hours after a judge dismissed charges against former police officer Mark Dial in the fatal shooting of 27-year-old Eddie Irizarry.
