California 7-Eleven workers are forced to stop brazen burglar on their own after he clears shelves into a trash can

A pair of 7-Eleven workers in California were left with no choice but to take on a brazen thief by themselves – but they were hardly empty-handed. 

Stunning footage showed the scene filmed in 2023 at the store. The thief was clearing shelves and dumping merchandise into a trash can.  

A stunned onlooker filmed the incident and encouraged the employees to wait until the police arrived. 

They confronted the suspect about why he was stealing so much, but the thief threatened to shoot them and continued to scoop armfuls of goods into the trash can.

The workers eventually had enough and came together to restrain him and hit the suspect with a large wooden stick.

One of the workers is heard asking: ‘Hey, why are you stealing everything?’ before the thief threatened to ‘pull my strap on your b**** ass’.

A customer tried to diffuse the situation and told the employees ‘Just let him go. Ain’t nothing you can do until the police come here.’ 

The customer also asked the workers if the store was insured and advised them to wait for the authorities.

A second 7-Eleven staff member arrived and hit the thief with a large wooden stick as the suspect shouted in pain.
