Reno PD Looking To Curb Flash Mob Thefts

The Reno Police Department is increasing patrols during the holiday season to combat retail theft, including ‘flash mob’ robberies. RPD will be boosting patrols at several malls and shopping centers starting today, Nov. 20 and lasting until the end of the holiday season. Flash mobs are groups of people who storm a store and steal items; usually higher-end goods that can easily be resold, reports KOLO 8.
