Brazen shoplifters filled garbage bags and a shopping cart with laundry detergent at a DC grocery store, located just a mile from the United States Capitol.

Three thieves were filmed stealing loads of detergent from inside the Giant Food grocery store on H Street in DC on Tuesday afternoon as shoppers ignored them.

A video, posted to Twitter by Nathan, who asked to be identified only by his first name, shows the thieves languidly stuffing several bottles and containers of laundry detergent and fabric softener into their cart and bags.

Besides the cleaning supplies, it appears the thieves stole a can of mayonnaise and a large jar of salsa, among other things.

A second thief, who appears to be carrying a Vera Bradley-style handbag, was caught pushing Gain fabric softener into a large black trash bag.

A third thief was seen running down the driveway with a reusable grocery bag. We don’t know what items he had in his bag.

Store security apparently didn’t bother to intervene in the thefts and let the thieves continue their rampage, Fox News reported.
