Exactly what was said in the post is unclear, but it appears to echo a similar post that was passed around on Sunday that urged people to “hit it up” at the Weberstown Mall in Stockton.
That mall did see some vandalism on Sunday. Stockton police arrested several people on suspicion of looting.
Modesto police say officers are at the Vintage Faire mall working with security to ensure safety.
