They could be the best dressed and accessorized thieves out there.
The Louis Vuitton store in Aspen was robbed sometime between 8:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Tuesday, June 10, and the thieves made off with approximately $500k of LV merchandise. According to 9news, a surveillance camera captured one man and one woman with two vehicles, reported the Aspen Police Department. "We think they stole between $400,000 and $500,000 ... of shoes, accessories and clothing," Sgt. Rick Magnuson.
Apparently, the thieves were quite cunning and handy. After entering an unlocked hallway from the back of the store, they cut a hole in the drywall to the storeroom just large enough for a person to climb through it and nabbing as many goods as they could from the retail section of the store. They spent approximately an hour in the store, said Magnuson.
The "designer" thieves are still at large and Aspen police are asking for any information regarding the Dodge minivan, possibly a Chrysler Pacifica, another unidentified vehicle, as well as the male and female, and any others who may be involved.
If you have any information, please contact the Aspen Police Department at 970-429-1822.
