Thieves Take Purses at Beverly Hills Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus

Three of the four thieves who robbed two swank Beverly Hills department stores on Wilshire Boulevard and got away with an unknown amount of merchandise remain at large, authorities said.

The fourth, a juvenile, was located within the perimeter set up shortly after the crimes, and arrested, police said. Because the arrested suspect is a juvenile, no further details were released.

The four male suspects stole purses at 2:20 p.m. Saturday from the Saks Fifth Avenue store at 9600 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills police said.

They entered the store, grabbed several handbags and fled on foot, police said.

At about the same time, the Neiman Marcus store at 9700 Wilshire Boulevard reported suspects "went inside and took property," Sgt. J. Dufour said.

Police set up a perimeter at Charleville Boulevard and Gregory Way between Camden Drive and Peck Drive, where the juvenile was arrested, Dufour said.

Three suspects remain at large, police said.

Anyone with information about the crime or identity of the suspects was asked to call Beverly Hills police at 310-285-2158.
