Store posts security video on web to catch thieves

A clothing store in Northwest has posted video of a brazen robbery on YouTube in an effort to catch the culprits -- and they're offering a $500 reward to anyone with information that leads to the arrest of one or more of the individuals involved.

In the security video from Universal Gear at 1529 14 Street, NW, in Logan Circle, eight or nine young men walk into the store at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night.  After grabbing everything they can hold, the thieves bolt for the door.

Store employees tried to save the day, but got pushed and punched instead.  All of the suspects got away.
