ST. PAUL -- Police are investigating after large groups of people robbed Best Buy stores in Burnsville and Maplewood on Friday, Nov. 26.

A group of 20 to 30 people entered a Best Buy near Burnsville Center about 8 p.m. and stole electronics, then fled before police arrived, according to the Burnsville Police Department.

No weapons were used, and no injuries were reported.

The same night, 10 to 12 adults and children stole “high-value items” from the Best Buy near Maplewood Mall about 8:10 p.m., Maplewood police said.

By the time police arrived on the scene, the suspects were gone. They stole televisions, tablets and hoverboards, police said.
