A flash mob of bikers was caught on camera on Sunday stealing fuel from a gas station in Argentina.

Surveillance footage showed a YPF station attendant refueling an SUV across from a pickup and another vehicle parked.
Within seconds, about 60 bikers pulled into the gas station and began fueling their own bikes while others performed stunts with their bikes.

Buenos Aires Congressman Cristian Ritondo has criticized Governor Axel Kicillof and Security Minister Sergio Berni for not spending more time finding a solution to the province’s security problems and for more concerns about a failed assassination attempt on Vice President Cristina make Fernandez
Buenos Aires Congressman Cristian Ritondo, who is leading the Republican proposal in the lower house of the National Congress, took to Twitter to slam Gov. Axel Kicillof and Security Minister Sergio Berni for spending more time investigating the failed assassination attempt on Vice President Cristina Fernández instead of fighting crime in the province.
Fernández was walking to her apartment in the Recolecta neighborhood of Buenos Aires last Thursday when Brazilian Fernando André Sabag approached her and held his Bersa 380 pistol just inches from her face before it jammed after he pulled the trigger.
“The flash mob piranha attack is a picture perfect picture of the province’s decomposition: 60 motorcyclists stealing and taunting themselves on camera,” Ritondo wrote.
“During my tenure as Buenos Aires Security Minister, we have multiplied operations, confiscated more than 30,000 motorcycles and also promoted the anti-motorcycle law,” he added. “There are no excuses when it comes to a political decision.”
