The Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, packed with Christmas Eve shoppers looking for that last gift, when a guy was spotted shoplifting. Security chased him and he knocked over a display case in Macy's. When it crashed to the floor, some people thought it was gunshots. Panic ensued as hundreds of people ran to the exits. Others sought shelter in the stock rooms and dressing rooms of stores until a PA announcement of the all clear. The guy was arrested but there was a net loss. One witness I interviewed for 1010 WINS says more than a few people took advantage of the confusion and ran from the mall with their unpaid items still in hand.

More from 1010 WINS.
