DC shoplifters caught on video snatching laundry detergent from a store near the Capitol

Shoplifters were caught on camera brazenly robbing a grocery store, just a mile from the United States Capitol in Washington, DC

In the video, at least three people from the Giant Food grocery store on H Street NE are seen stealing as much laundry detergent as they can carry, filling garbage bags and a shopping cart, before going further in the store.

The robbery happened around 1 p.m., a witness told Fox News.

Another person in the video, who appears to be a shopper unaffiliated with the theft, can be seen very casually walking past the suspected thieves.

A witness to the crime told Fox News that the store’s security guard did not attempt to arrest the thieves.

Giant Grocery responded to the video of the theft on Twitter, saying it was investigating. It is not known whether the thieves have been arrested.
