Montgomery County police are investigating a robbery that took place at a 7-Eleven in Germantown, and involved more than two dozen people.

Authorities say the so-called "flash mob robbery" happened around 1:45 a.m. Saturday.

The group of about 24 people entered the store, stole snacks, drinks and other items and left after about one minute.

Police have identified several of the suspects through surveillance video.

A police spokeswoman says she doesn't know how the robbery was organized.
