Three arrests were made as looters rushed into the Walnut Creek Nordstrom, stealing merchandise. Reportedly 25 cars blocked the street while this havoc was going on. One firearm was also recovered from one of the looters.

The incident was first reported at 8:46 p.m. while the store was still open. According to reports, a Nordstrom in Walnut Creek, CA, was looted after almost  “50 to 80 people” ran down on the store. Police say the incident went down this past Saturday night and there was complete madness.

One PF Chang’s Manager who was nearby spoke on the incident, saying, “We probably saw 50 to 80 people in ski masks crowbars a bunch of weapons. They were looting the Nordstrom’s right here. And I thought they were going to start beating cars. I had to start locking doors, lock the front door lock the back door.”

Video footage shows a large number of police presence in Walnut Creek Saturday night. A manager at a restaurant nearby said that his customers were utterly shocked to see looters grabbing merchandise, loading their cars and driving off just like that. One BMW convertible which was supposedly connected to the mayhem was tackled by the police.

Out of the 80 people involved in the incident, three people were reportedly arrested, and a gun was recovered from one of the suspects. What’s your take on this madness? Sound off in the comments!

In search of simplicity and inner peace, Gunjan is basically a guy soldiering through his paranoia. You could say Art, Witty/Dark/Retard Humor, Movies, Anime, Post-rock/Black Metal/Hip-Hop/Shoegaze Music, Football, Creative Writing, Photography, Videography are his forte. A Jack of All Trades and a Master of Many. Dangerously bipolar. He can go on months without being productive and also work 12 hours straight. He's basically a lazy, procrastinating person. But if art and ideas hit him like sudden motivational sparks, he can invest sleepless nights on that. Drive to creating art: Sometimes guilt and inferiority complex. Sometimes sudden spikes of motivation seeing artists like yuumei, bosslogic, Kim Jung gi amongst others. Gunjan loves doing scribble art the most. It defines him. He says - 'It's like I'm lost and hoping to find a way out at the end. Expressing my chaotic, spontaneous mind, looking for inner peace in those infinite entanglements I create.' He loves to let the ink flow, losing control, losing myself completely in the act.' Once he was asked - 'why this constant urge of being good at everything? You are great at the things you do best. You don't have to be a master of every art. ' To that he replied - 'because that's how I work. I just don't like this idea of stopping at what I have already achieved. Limitations disgust me. I believe in becoming a jack of all trades and a master of many, plus this innate ability of being good at what I try doing and this upper hand of being a fast learner. I want to master all kinds of musical instruments, sports, forms of art.' He invests in ideas, brainstorming, creativity, flexibility, originality. Professionally however, he is that regular ‘IT guy’. He previously worked on roles such as Full Stack Engineer, Frontend Developer, UX/UI Designer, Digital Artist and Data Analyst. He is willing to use his flexibility and adaptability, coupled with the innate ability of being an extremely fast learner to use his words and wisdom here at Thirsty For News. Fun fact: He is obsessed with huskies, number "7", Germany, Japan, football, Naruto, Breaking Bad, cinema (in a broader perspective) Tldr: In search of simplicity and inner peace.
