CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Sports Authority stores around Chicago have been hit by a wave of group robberies in the past week.

Officials say stores in Burbank, Frankfort, and on Clark Street in Lakeview have been robbed by several people who come in, grab a bunch of merchandise and run out the front door.

Police are investigating, and the sporting goods retailer is offering a $5,000 reward in the case.

Surveillance video shows how the group of individuals operate: They walk in calmly, walk up to the racks and run out of the stores with large amounts of merchandise.

Retail organized crime is a growing trend in America.
