Video shows group ransacking AutoZone after street takeover

Nearly 50 people burglarized an AutoZone after a street takeover in Los Angeles on Monday morning, authorities announced.

The burglary was reported at about 3:50 a.m. at an AutoZone located at Century Boulevard and Hoover Street, according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer David Cuellar.

A street takeover had occurred near the store and video from the scene showed about 50 people crowding around the storefront with several covering their heads and faces with hoodies and masks pulling open the security gate, forcing their way in and stealing items.

Officers requested backup to pursue someone driving a gray Infiniti sedan fleeing from the location, Cuellar said. The person was arrested on suspicion of burglary at Pepper Street and East Sycamore Avenue.
