PORTLAND -- One juvenile has been identified and as many as 12 more may also be added to a list of suspects in a flash rob incident at an Albertsons grocery store.

Sgt. Steve Bevens told KGW that a juvenile standing by a Starbucks kiosk cash register in the surveillance video has been identified.

Bevens said he expects an arrest of that teen on accusations that may include burglary, disorderly conduct, attempted theft and riot.

Detectives said seven phone calls led to others being singled out. Anyone with information about the incident should call Troutdale police.

As many as 40 youths walked into the store late Saturday night and started shoplifting while trashing the store.

The teens overwhelmed employees, with some bragging and laughing about how much they were stealing, a witness told KGW.

There have been several other flash rob thefts recently in the Portland area.
