An alleged looter shared video showing off box after box of merchandise he stole amidst the riots in Santa Monica, California only to go viral and draw the attention of the LAPD and Santa Monica Police.
The Santa Monica Problems Twitter account first shared the man’s snapchat video on Tuesday afternoon:
One of the looters bragging on social media about all the merch he stole. Twitter: do you work. Let’s find this guy & expose him! #SantaMonica #SantaMonicaLooting #FIRECHIEFRENAUD @Lane_Dilg @GleamDavis @TedWinterer @santamonicacity @SaMoMayor @KevinMcKeownSM pic.twitter.com/UXclwTP4eE

The video was then shared by FOX LA’s Bill Melugin:

The LAPD responded:
We see the video, as will @SantaMonicaPD.

Then the SMPD:
This video has been shared with SMPD detectives for follow up.

Internet sleuths allegedly ID’ed the suspect and sent his info to police.
There was tons of looting in Santa Monica over the weekend:
The looting in Santa Monica is out of control. The Democrats who run Santa Monica and California better wise up quickly and get law enforcement in there to take control. Elected Democrats there have abandoned their duty to protect innocent Americans. pic.twitter.com/1XypWrR9Yh

There’s really no question that tons of these looters could be easily identified — both through in store surveillance cameras and the thousands of hours of footage shared on social media — it’s more just a question of whether local District Attorneys are willing to uphold the law.
John Creuzot is the Soros-funded, Black Lives Matter-promoting prosecutor who refuses to prosecute the looters, vandals & hoodlums terrorizing Dallas County. https://t.co/KsG68v7G35
