Video captures a woman strolling casually into a Rite Aid in Venice wielding a pickaxe and stealing merchandise while spewing a stream of obscenities. She threatens the store employees and customers.

The woman, dressed all in black, is seen walking in the Venice Beach store on Lincoln Boulevard about 3 p.m. on Wednesday with the garden tool slung over her right shoulder and pulling a shopping cart full of stolen beuaty items behind her.

The police are still searching for her, but thanks to our corrupt douchebag politicians, like Mike Bonin, she will just be let go and keep on doing this type of shit till she eventually kills someone.

Every weekday morning, West Coast Care connects with the homeless on the beaches of Santa Monica to provide care and support. As part of Project Homecoming, West Coast Care worked with the Santa Monica Police Department to help reconnect people to their families. West Coast Care helped nearly 300 people find housing last year—roughly half were reconnected with their families.

Video from Venice Gallerie:

"Back story: the man being chased had previously destroyed vendors' property on the Venice Beach Boardwalk.

He proceeded to break the driver's side window of a city worker's vehicle, while the driver was still in the truck.

"Red" chased him down, and proceeded to beat him up.

The man was hospitalized but not with serious injuries"
