CLAYTON   •   St. Louis County police have released surveillance video and still images of suspected looters taken inside a gas station shortly after the announcement of the grand jury's decision in the Michael Brown shooting.

The police department is seeking the public's help in identifying the suspects. The cameras caught 28 people burglarizing the Phillips 66 gas station near Dellwood at 1955 Chambers Road, according to the department's Facebook page.

Detectives determined that looters shattered the front door. From there, numerous people entered the business and burglarized it, police said.

St. Louis County police Sgt. Brian Schellman said detectives are investigating reports that dozens of businesses were vandalized or burglarized in addition to 24 arsons. He said detectives have numerous surveillance images to sift through, and first try to identify suspects on their own. 

"Detectives doing an investigation sometimes run into dead ends," he said. "We're just looking for the public's help to identify some of these individuals."

He expects his department will be releasing additional footage and images from surveillance cameras in the coming weeks as more becomes available.

"They take each single burglary case individually, and that's why we posted this one because the first images are pretty clear," he said.

Anyone with information can contact the St. Louis County Police or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477.
