Teens arrested for allegedly ransacking Monsey supermarket

MONSEY -

A group of teens was arrested for allegedly ransacking the Evergreen Kosher Market in Monsey Thursday – tipping over boxes of fruit, throwing crates and pushing store employees.

The entire incident was caught on a cellphone camera.

According to store manager Meyer Hirschhorn, the teens came into the market looking to steal and began raiding the store as they tried to get away.

The teens also made an appearance earlier in the week, and were allegedly caught trying to steal food.

Hirschhorn believes this time they returned to retrieve one of their bicycles that had been left inside, but they were caught stealing once again.

He held down one of the teens for nearly five minutes, until police arrived and arrested all five of them.

Ramapo police are not releasing any information as the case involves minors.
