While looters targeted various clothing stores in Santa Monica, one onlooker posted a video to social media showing a group of people breaking into an Amazon van, throwing objects at the vehicle to break its windows before gathering in the back as a larger group of people appeared to run away with packages.
Santa Monica police announced Monday that they made more than 400 arrests.
According to local authorities, 95 percent of the individuals arrested for charges ranging from looting, assault with a deadly weapon, assault on a police officer and curfew violations, "reside outside the city."
