Masked Burglars Swarm Beverly Grove Store in Smash-and-Grab Heist

The thieves stole handbags, clothes and other items from an warehouse sale

A smash-and-grab burglary crew ransacked a Beverly Grove business, grabbing clothes, bags and other items in an overnight heist.

The crime was reported early Monday at the site of an warehouse sale, a pop-up event in the 100 block of North Robertson Boulevard. At about 3 a.m., witnesses reported five to 10 masked people who got out of four separate cars, then smashed the building's front windows.

"One suspect went up to the window with a heavy object, smashed the window," said LAPD Sgt. Delano Hutchins. "The rest of the suspects entered the location, removed the property, placed the property in the vehicles and took off."

Once inside, the thieves grabbed as much merchandise as they could in about five minutes, according to witnesses.

The members only sale featured items from Gucci, Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutin and other high-end designers.

No arrests were reported early Monday.
