PORTLAND, Ore. – Police said a group of teenagers stole around $1,000 worth of jeans from the Macy’s store at Lloyd Center Mall in a so-called “flash rob.”

Store security guards told police a group of five or six boys and girls in their teens came into the Macy’s store and simply grabbed several pairs of Levi’s brand jeans, according to police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson.

The thieves then fled into the mall and ran out through the Sears store at the east side of the building. Somebody driving a silver SUV with Texas plates picked them up and drove off down Broadway, Simpson said.

Simpson said officers plan to release surveillance images at some point. Right now the only descriptions police gave were that the suspects are black and there were boys and girls in the group.

Anyone with information about the theft can contact Detective Chris Brace at (503) 823-4104 or Chris.Brace@PortlandOregon.gov.
