The Galleria recently set a curfew on teens in the mall without adult supervision to cut down on theft and violence.
Officers with the Richmond Heights Police Department responded to the St. Louis Galleria Monday evening. The Galleria has closed. It’s unclear why they’re responding, other than a report of “multiple incidents” inside the mall. Brentwood Police also responded. Several stores were evacuated shortly after 6:00. Nordstrom and Macy’s have closed their gates and confirm a lockdown.
