Police in Georgia say about 50 teens ransacked a Walmart store because they wanted to see how much damage they could cause. Answer: about $2,000. The vandalism took place just before 2am Sunday as the teens entered the store in Macon and unleashed about a minute of destruction up and down the aisles, reports the Smoking Gun. Bibb County deputies arrested alleged ringleader Kharron Green, 17, who was quoted as saying the rampage was planned. He faces charges of inciting to riot, gang activity, and criminal damage to property. (More weird crimes stories.)
