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

The bizarre incident took place after 3am local time at a government-run service station in the Buenos Aires town of Bernal at the intersection of San Martín and Zapiola avenues.

Surveillance footage showed a YPF gas station attendant refueling an SUV across from where a pickup truck and another vehicle were parked. 

Within a matter of seconds about 60 bikers rode into the gas station and started fueling their own motorcycles while others did stunts with their bikes.

While the owner of a pickup truck was able to drive out of the gas station without any issues, the person in the vehicle that was being refueled and the driver of a mini van that was parked next to the pickup could not leave the site.

According to Argentine news network TN, the gas station attendants called 911 on six occasions.

A patrol from a police precinct located five blocks away arrived after the bikers and no arrests were made.

It’s unknown how much money the gas station lost due to the fuel that was stolen.

Buenos Aires congressman Cristian Ritondo, who leads the Republican Proposal in the lower house of the National Congress, took to Twitter to slam governor Axel Kicillof and security minister Sergio Berni for devoting more time to the investigation into the failed assassination attempt of Vice President Cristina Fernández instead of combating crime in the province.

Fernández was walking to her apartment in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Recolecta last Thursday when Brazilian national Fernando André Sabag approached her and held his Bersa 380 pistol just inches from her face before it got jammed after he pulled the trigger.

‘The flash mob attack piranha is a perfect picture of the decomposition of the Province: 60 motorcyclists stealing and mocking themselves in front of the cameras,’ Ritondo wrote.

‘During my tenure as Buenos Aires minister of security, we multiplied the operations, seized more than 30,000 motorcycles and also promoted the law against motorcycles,’ he added. ‘When there is a political decision, there are no excuses.’
