DALLAS (AP) — Police detained six robbery suspects after a minivan smashed into a Dallas-area Chanel boutique and pricey purses ended up scattered along a street.
Formal charges were pending after Monday’s robbery of a Chanel store in Highland Park before the establishment opened for the day.
An alarm alerted police, who determined a minivan was driven through a display window and the suspects escaped with a number of handbags, fleeing in the vehicle and on foot.
Lt. Lance Koppa says police recovered a minivan believed used in the theft. A couple of Chanel bags, some selling for thousands of dollars each, were abandoned on the ground near the vehicle.
Police searched yards near the Highland Park Village shopping plaza to look for other stolen and then discarded Chanel items.
