Surveillance videos show teens trashing Walmart

Posted: Updated:


(WXIA) MACON, Ga. -- The Bibb County Sheriff's Office released surveillance video Wednesday that shows about 40 to 50 teens trashing Walmart on Zebulon Road early Sunday.
According to an incident report from the Bibb Sheriff's Office, at 1:50 a.m., a large crowd of teens entered the Walmart on Zebulon Road, and ran down the main aisle, pulling merchandise off the shelves.
The report says the length of the store, from front to back, was lined with items "that had been shattered, destroyed, turned over and thrown about."

A police officer who viewed store video also said it showed the crowd pulling a man from an electric wheelchair and throwing him to the ground.

Bibb County Public Information Officer Lieutenant Randy Gonzalez says, "This is the first I've ever even heard of anything like this occurring in Macon in all my years of law enforcement."

Gonzalez says each person involved will likely face a couple of charges including, enticing to riot, and criminal damage to property.

The video showed Kharron Green entering the store first, showing gang signs and then showing the crowd following him, according to the report.

An employee told officers that Green told them that the group planned the event to see how much damage they could cause. He said the group came "the south side."

Green faces an additional charge of street gang activity since he threw up gang signs as he entered the store.

A store manager estimated damage at $2,000.

An officer who arrived on the scene said he saw the large crowd scatter and leave in many different vehicles.
