Teens storm Georgia Wal-Mart in wild rampage of destruction

MACON, Ga. (AP) — Authorities in central Georgia say up to 50 teenagers bent on destruction raced into a Wal-Mart in Macon, smashing merchandise and causing an estimated $2,000 in damage.

Bibb County sheriff’s officials say some of the young people snatched a man from a motorized shopping cart and dragged him to the floor during the rampage around 2 a.m. Sunday.

Sheriff’s officials said one of the teens later told a Wal-Mart employee the goal was to see how much damage they could cause.

Sheriff’s officials say floors were coated with broken merchandise.

The Telegraph reports that the teens ran when deputies arrived, but a 17-year-old boy was arrested when he returned to the store to retrieve his cellphone.

Bibb County Sheriff David Davis said investigators are using surveillance video to try and identify suspects.
