EXCLUSIVE: Video shows dozens of thieves ransacking Oakland store, stealing $ 100,000 in merchandise

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) – A small Oakland business wants to publicize a mass theft in which a hundred thousand dollars worth of goods was stolen.

Ali Zerag says his brother’s store, 98 Gift Shop in the International and 98th region, was broken into early last Saturday morning. Surveillance video shows dozens of people flocking and ransacking the smokehouse.

This weekend, Oakland’s independent Wellspring Pharmacy was also targeted in a similar fashion. Owner Andrew Beyers said the theft was devastating and employees spent much of their day restoring the store so customers could have their prescriptions on time.

Oakland Police are investigating the incident.
