Police receive nearly two dozen tips in Casey’s incident

Cedar Rapids Police have received nearly two dozen tips since releasing video yesterday from an incident at Casey’s last week. 

It happened at the Casey’s on Ellis and O Avenue NW last Tuesday after a nearby firework show. 

Faces of those believed to be victims have been blurred out in the video. 

The video shows dozens of people many of which appear to be teenagers causing chaos in the store. 

Police say some were stealing things and they even have reports of assault. 

At one point in the video you can see a candy bar display get knocked over and multiple teens stealing candy bars off the floor, one even takes an entire box. 

The mob eventually shut down the store for the night. 

"These acts are 100% unacceptable, we’re not going to tolerate it in this city, in this community," says Cedar Rapids Police Chief Wayne Jerman. 

Police are working on identifying each person involved.

"We’re working closely with our schools. We have school resource officers who you know can also have access to year books and other forms that can help identify some of these persons involved," Chief Jerman told us. 

So far no one has been charged.

If you recognize anyone in the video or were a witness or victim yourself police want to hear from you.
